Four New Legal Blogs of Note

Here are four new blogs of interest to legal professionals:

  • Summary Judgments. From Loyola Law School in Los Angeles comes this blog, which will serve as a clearinghouse for faculty commentary on a range of issues and highlight faculty scholarship. The blog kicked off the new year with “11 on ’11,” a series of posts in which professors are forecasting what lies ahead in 2011.
  • Letters Blogatory. If you are enough of an international law geek to deal with letters rogatory, then this is the blog for you. Its author, Ted Folkman, a lawyer at Murphy & King in Boston, says his goal is to provide a practical resource for practitioners to keep up with developments in international law.
  • Retail Law Observer. The law firm of Crowell & Moring in Washington, D.C., publishes this blog, devoted to covering legal issues and key trends facing the retail industry. Topics will include property leasing and development, labor and employment, consumer protections and bankruptcy.
  • Legal Skills Prof Blog. Another addition to the Law Professor Blogs Network, this blog aims to provide a forum for discussion among the law professors who teach legal skills, the practitioners who hire their students, and the students themselves. The blog’s editor is James B. Levy, associate professor at Nova Southeastern School of Law. Among the contributing editors are two non-academics who are well-known legal bloggers, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell.
