A post on the U of A Faculty of Law Blog caught my eye today. Other articles on SLAW have discussed legal publishing trends. The Alberta Law Review online supplement looks very much like a blog, but with a qualifier for the posts:
The Alberta Law Review is pleased to introduce a new, moderated forum for legal debate: the Alberta Law Review Online Supplement. This new forum will be a place for legal scholars, practitioners and students to discuss and debate contemporary legal issues. Please visit the forum to discover what enquiring legal minds are thinking about right now. If you would like to make a submission, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A quick search of the blogosphere turned up one list with a few more legal journal blogs.
Any thoughts on what this trend does to your current system of monitoring legal issues? Should thorough researchers of trends in the law be looking at law review companion sites as well as the journals themselves?
