"A law professor blawg designed to feel like a faculty lounge with conversations about law, culture, and academia." A group blawg with multiple daily posts that discuss books and great legal thinkers, track law faculty openings and hires, and generally examine the lay of the land for law professors and law students. The occasional news-of-the-weird item will also slip in.
This blog, for aspiring law students, current law students and newbie lawyers, is less about finding inspiration and more about finding answers to specific questions. Expert guest posters (FYI, not all of them women) are brought in to take on specific topics—such as preparing for the LSAT, writing a law review note or applying for a clerkship. But this blog isn't only useful for those breaking into law. Those trying to break out of the profession will also find acceptance and words of wisdom.
The bloggers offer an interesting overview of many psychological and sociological elements to consider when crafting an argument to appeal to specific juror demographics. We especially appreciate how they explicitly tailor their advice to address the concerns of both plaintiffs attorneys and defense attorneys.
