New Blog: ‘Today in Legal History’

FindLaw has teamed with National Public Radio’s Justice Talking program to launch the blog Today in Legal History. As the name suggests, each day the blog highlights a historical event related to law or government. The blog appears on both FindLaw and on JusticeLearning, a Web site produced by Justice Talking together with The New York Times Learning Network.
