Patent Law Blog: The Art of IP War
August 23, 2006 at 10:15 AM
My husband brought my attention to Richard Cauley’s blog, The Art of IP War. Cauley is a partner in the Newport Beach law firm of Wang, Hartmann & Gibbs, and he specializes in (surprise!) patent litigation. Read his blog for keen insights about the latest patent battles.
CALI's Pre-Law Blog
August 22, 2006 at 2:00 PM
CALI’s Pre-Law Blog has been getting lots of mentions from other law school bloggers lately, so I wanted to put in my own plug for it. Don’t be fooled by the blog’s name! The name "Pre-Law Blog" might make you think that the blog only has information for those who are contemplating law school. But there’s a lot of good material here for current law students as well (particularly first-years). I particularly like the regular features on the latest podcasts from law school professors.

SCU Law Welcomes Another Blogging Professor
August 14, 2006 at 4:15 PM
Heafey Headnotes was thrilled to find two blogs by our new SCU Law professor, Eric Goldman, during a recent Talk Digger search. You can find Professor Goldman’s observations about Internet law and marketing at his Tech & Marketing Blog. Goldman’s Observations Blog is a more eclectic compilation of thoughts on teaching law, moving to California, and the latest legal headlines.
False Claims Act/Qui Tam Blog
August 01, 2006 at 9:20 AM
When I practiced law, I spent a good portion of my practice on Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse and False Claims Act matters, so I was pleased to see that there is a blog devoted to news about qui tam cases. The appropriately-named False Claims Act/Qui Tam Blog is authored by attorneys at the firm of Phillips & Cohen LLP, which specializes in representing whistleblowers. The blog isn’t limited to health care matters -- it covers all kinds of qui tam litigation, which makes it a good current awareness resource for lawyers and academics interested in this area. Thanks to Inter Alia for the tip.
Georgetown Law Faculty Blog
July 05, 2006 at 2:05 PM
Georgetown Law’s faculty have been busy this summer, joining the ranks of law professors who are working collaboratively on one blog. This new venture is logically called the Georgetown Law Faculty Blog, and the faculty have started out with several lively posts about the U.S. Supreme Court’s Hamdan decision. Thanks to PrawfsBlawg, another collaborative law prof blog, for the heads-up.
Law-Related Literature List
June 13, 2006 at 3:05 PM
For those of you looking for some law-related literature for your beach reading or as a distraction from studying for the bar, Daniel Solove has thoughtfully compiled a list of literature about the law. If you’re interested in law and humanities, check out Professor Solove’s group blog, the Law and Humanities blog as well as The Law and Humanities Institute.

Folger Levin's IP Blog
May 14, 2006 at 10:20 AM
Folger Levin & Kahn, a firm with offices in SF and LA, has a year-old IP law blog called IP Law Observer, which covers breaking developments in patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and privacy law. The blog also strays into general business and commercial law from time to time, which also makes it an excellent read for corporate attorneys who don’t necessarily specialize in IP. Thanks to Inter Alia for the tip.

List of Law Review Articles that Cite Blogs
April 20, 2006 at 9:30 AM
Once again, 3L Epiphany has created a useful list for legal researchers. This time, Ian Best has compiled a list of law review articles that cite blogs. Some might jump to the conclusion that citations to blogs will only appear in law review articles about blogging, but I was pleasantly surprised to see blogs cited in articles about a host of legal topics, including human rights, legal ethics, Medicare’s prescription drug benefit, international law, evidence, and more. Also, highly-respected law reviews aren’t afraid to include articles that cite to blogs. Ian Best’s list reveals that the University of Chicago Law Review, Cornell Law Review, and Michigan Law Review have all published articles that cite blogs. Thanks to PrawfsBlawg for the pointer.
Vox Clamantis In Deserto
April 20, 2006 at 9:00 AM
Since I began blogging at Heafey Headnotes last November, I’ve highlighted blogs authored by many other schools’ law professors, but I’ve neglected to feature SCU Law’s sole law professor blogger, David Friedman. Professor Friedman’s succinctly -named blog, Ideas, doesn’t just focus on the law. He’s also blogging about current affairs and cultural issues.
Postscript: For those of you who are wondering about the meaning of the Latin title for this post, it means "a voice crying in the wilderness," which seems appropriate since SCU Law has just one faculty blogger (if there are more, please let us know!). It’s the motto of my undergraduate alma mater, Dartmouth College.
Disability Law Blog
April 17, 2006 at 9:10 AM
Beyond the Ramp is a relatively new blog, which is designed to increase awareness about disability issues. The blog is co-authored by a group of five law students from New York City. According to the student authors, the blog is intended to serve as "a forum to educate people about the legal issues affecting people with disabilities." The best thing about this blog is that the authors don’t just cover legal matters. In addition to highlighting recent developments in disability law, Beyond the Ramp also publicizes upcoming conferences and media stories about individuals with disabilities. Thanks to Inter Alia for the tip.
Looking for a Paper Topic? Check Out Split Circuits!
April 04, 2006 at 12:50 PM
Professor A. Benjamin Spencer at the University of Richmond School of Law has a blog that’s a must-read for law students trying to find paper topics. The blog is called Split Circuits, and it features nothing but Professor Spencer’s commentary on splits among the federal circuits. Professor Spencer discusses circuit splits on a wide variety of legal topics, so there’s something for everybody on Split Circuits. Thanks (again) to Inter Alia for the tip!

3L Epiphany's Taxonomy of Legal Blogs
March 30, 2006 at 1:30 PM
One of the most frustrating things about Internet resources -- at least for librarians -- is that they are not neatly cataloged like the items in a library. Sure, Google has the "similar pages" function on its search results page, but it’s never yielded anything that’s relevant to my research topic when I’ve used it. Most of the time, I focus on trying to find frequently-updated meta-pages about different legal research topics (for those of you wondering, a meta-page is a Web page that compiles links to lots of different Internet resources on a particular topic. See the library’s Internet Resources pages for examples of meta-pages). I’ve just found an excellent legal blog meta-page, compiled by Ian Best, the author of 3L Epiphany. Ian has created an extremely useful taxonomy of legal blogs, which categorizes blogs according to jurisdictional focus, author/publisher, legal specialty, and a bunch of other categories. There’s even a collection of other blawg meta-pages!
Online List of Law School Symposia
March 29, 2006 at 3:30 PM
Professor Rick Bales at Salmon P. Chase College of Law maintains a list of upcoming law school symposia, which is a handy reference source for law faculty and law review editors. Professor Bales also blogs at Workplace Prof Blog -- an excellent current awareness tool for those who need to stay abreast of breaking labor and employment law developments.
Social Justice Legal Research Blog Debuts
March 17, 2006 at 11:50 AM
The law librarians at Zimmerman Law Library (University of Dayton School of Law) just unveiled Vox Bibliothecae, a new legal research blog devoted to social justice and human rights topics. You can find detailed information about the blog’s focus in this post. For those of you who enjoy reading law library blogs, you can find a very useful list of blogging law libraries here, which has been maintained by Bonnie Shucha at the University of Wisconsin.
Symposium on Blogs & Legal Scholarship
March 15, 2006 at 11:35 AM
Given the high volume of posts about legal scholarship and blogging, I suppose it was inevitable that a law school would host a symposium on how blogs are transforming legal scholarship. And who better to organize such an event than Harvard Law School? The symposium, "Bloggership: How Blogs Are Transforming Legal Scholarship," will be held on April 27-28 at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The discussion promises to be lively because the scheduled speakers include both blogging enthusiasts (a sizable portion of the Volokh Conspiracy profs are participating) and folks such as Kate Litvak who scoff at the idea that blogs offer serious scholarly content. Stay tuned for posts from attendees who are live-blogging the event.

That’s been fixed.
Additional Debate About the Value of Law Professor Blawgs
February 28, 2006 at 2:15 PM
Professor James Edward Maule of Villanova University School of Law has written a thoughtful post about blogging and law professors, in which he argues that "it appears that the so-called traditionalists are beginning to sense the threat to their way of academic life that blogs, and technology generally, pose." Professor Maule also authored an earlier post on blogging in academia if you're interested in his earlier musings on the topic. The National Law Journal also has a lengthy article on blogging and law professors entitled "Blogging Law Profs Assault Ivory Tower." According to the article's author, at least 182 law professors are also blog authors, and the law schools at University of Chicago and UCLA have the highest number of blogging law professors.

Law Students Blawgs and Law Libraries
February 02, 2006 at 11:45 AM
Rob Hudson, a librarian at St. Thomas University School of Law, has written a fun little piece for the ALL-SIS Newsletter that compiles quotes about law libraries from law students’ blawgs. If you’re curious about what Santa Clara law students have to say about their law school experiences, you can find blawgs authored by SCU law students by going to TalkDigger and entering the SCU Law URL, http://www.scu.edu/law, in the "Dig It!" search box.

Jus in Bello: A Blog Devoted to the International Criminal Court
December 09, 2005 at 11:00 AM
Continuing today’s theme of international criminal law resources, we’re featuring a relatively new blog from Pace Law School faculty called Jus in Bello. The blog concentrates on the International Criminal Court, other international criminal tribunals, and the law of international criminal prosecutions. Thanks to Out of the Jungle for the tip.
