Publish or Perish becomes Blog or Perish in the Law Review World

By

Tom Mighell’s Internet Legal Research Weekly (quick, fun, informative – subscribe!) led me to the intriguing Northwestern Colloquy (and Tom’s Sept 9th issue is especially loaded with great stuff). From Tom’s Weekly (the 9/9 issue that is) – see his archives too):

‘Northwestern University Law Review is using the weblog format to publish law review articles. Each post is really a mini-law review article, which you can read online or download as a PDF. Recent articles include “Is the ‘Junk’ DNA Designation Bunk?”, “Why the Blight Distinction in Post-Kelo Reform does Matter,” and “Massachusetts and EPA: Breaking New Ground on Issues other than Global Warming.”‘

Northwestern Colloquy is a marvelous and creative use of a blog (or blawg, if you prefer). Blogs are so easy (wikis not so much) and it is wonderful seeing what inventive law students can do with the simple blog.

Read their FAQ to have most of your questions answered, e.g. what is the Colloquy, how you cite to their essays and posts, how you submit a piece for publication, etc.
