What are Blogs Anyway?

Blogs are frequently updated web pages that collect links to news, articles, or other types of material and often provide personal commentary on a particular subject.  Law oriented blogs (sometimes called ‘blawgs’) have exploded in the past decade and like other types of blogs, they run the gamut in both focus and quality.  When they are good, they can be a great way to keep up with legal news, novel legal theories, new technology, emerging case law, proposed statutes or regulations, and other trends that affect anyone involved in the law. You can subscribe to blogs and have them delivered directly to you via an RSS feed. The library web page (Current Awareness Sources >> Law Blogs) has a hyperlinked guide to finding blogs focused on law school, law teaching, and the practice of law, as well as a collection of links to selected law blogs.
