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.
