A bloggy introduction to law school for 1Ls

During the last two springs, when teaching an upper-level elective course on the death penalty and then teaching a 1L required course on Legislation, I experimented with using blogs to support and supplement my instruction.  This blog for the spring 2007 upper-level death penalty course served my purposes and goals very well, this blog for the spring 2008 first-year Legislation course was part of a series of innovations achieving mixed results. 

Undaunted, I remain convinced (but not entirely confident) that the blog technology (rather than a propriety law-school-support technology like TWEN) provides the best on-line tool for supporting and supplement law school courses.  And I am especially excited that this coming Fall semester I am teaching a first-semester 1L course through which I can try to introduce brand new law students to the bloggy legal world I have come to know and love. 

So that's what this blog is about, and comments from any and everyone about this enterprise are welcome.
