BLOGS BY LAW PROFESSORS FOR LAW PROFESSORSLaw Professor Blogs is a network of web logs ("blogs") designed from the ground-up to assist law professors in their scholarship and teaching. Each site focuses on a particular area of law and combines both (1) regularly-updated permanent resources and links, and (2) daily news and information of interest to law professors. Our editors are leading scholars and teachers who are committed to providing the web destination for law professors in their fields.
What Law Professor Blogs Are
The permanent resources & links and daily news & information are designed to collect in one place materials helpful to law professors in their scholarship and teaching:
Permanent Resources and Links:
  1. A list of all the law professors in the field, with links to their personal web pages, along with a list of recent lateral moves, entry level hires, and visiting appointments

  2. A list of casebooks and other materials, with links to the books on the publisher's web site

  3. Links to working papers on SSRN, colloquia, and specialized law reviews

  4. Links to professional organizations for faculty (AALS section, ABA section, etc.)

  5. Links to think tanks, U.S., state & foreign law sources, publishers, and other web sites of interest
Daily News and Information:
  1. Upcoming colloquia, conferences, and meetings

  2. Abstracts of working papers and recently-published scholarship

  3. Book reviews

  4. Career moves

  5. Other items of interest to faculty writing and teaching in the area
What Law Professor Blogs Are NotOur blogs are not a collection of personal ruminations about the Presidential campaign, the war in Iraq, or what the editor had for dinner last night. Neither do our editors offer their personal views on every policy issue in the news or every new court decision. We leave that terrain to the many existing blogs with that mission. Instead, our editors focus their efforts, in both the permanent resources & links and daily news & information, on the scholarly and teaching needs of law professors. Our hope is that law professors will visit the Law Professor Blog in their area (or areas) as part of their daily routine.
Future Law Professor BlogsIn our start-up phase, we are continuously adding new Law Professor Blogs in various areas of law. If you would be interested in serving as editor of a blog, or if you would like to receive an email announcement as new blogs come on-line, please email us.

ABA Committee on Res

Grey Jr. of Richmond, Va., spent the past two years working on issues related to the future of the legal profession.&nbps; During FY2000-2001, the Committee focused its efforts on developing a report on the current state of the profession to serve as a platform to examine the challenges and opportunities of change and how the legal profession can and should define its own future.  The Committee issued an interim report in 2001.
In its second year, the Committee worked with legal futurist Stuart A.

Harris In The Clear?
Although public polls continue to show her as a clear underdog versus Sen. Bill Nelson and her fund-raising has been below par, Katherine Harris may still find herself without a Republican challenger as she seeks her party nomination for the 2006 Senate race.The National Republican Senatorial Committee isn't coming out strong behind her yet, but this week a spokesman for the group told me there is no active recruitment effort going on right now, despite a political buzz that says there is another push to get Florida House Speaker Allan Bense into the race. Last night on WEDU's Florida This Week, I was on with a group of political insiders in Tampa whom all assumed Harris would become the party's nominee. The bottom line, according to Republican watchers, is that no one is confident they can beat Harris without spending a ton of money. If they succeeded they'd be low on cash heading into a battle with Nelson, who already has about $7 million in the bank and is sure to have a lot more by the time a Republican primary battle would end in early September. The prospects of trying to beat a sitting incumbent with just about two months of campaign time after a possibly vicious and expensive primary doesn't appeal to many seasoned political watchers.If Harris posts a big fund-raising total at the end of this month, she'll go a long way in further shutting down talk of a primary battle. A $2 million total would certainly do it, according to most observers. If she posts less than $1 million, Harris will find a new push to get her out of the race. The importance of the money, and the message it can send is clearly not lost on Harris. She's aggressively raising money. She's had at least a pair of fund-raising events this week, and isn't expected to slow her pace. She has another event she's lining up in Tallahassee this week coming up. Plus, she tells the Insider that both Mel Martinez and Jeb Bush are going to come on board soon. Neither has said so publicly, but Harris said both have agreed to help her raise cash.Bottom line? It's crunch time for Harris.
