Welcome to the Moritz College of Law, Criminal Law with Professor Douglas Berman, and version 8.0 of this class blog

I am a big fan of law blogs and I make a regular habit of using blogs to support and supplement my instruction in law school classes. I find that blog technology (rather than a propriety law-school-support technology like TWEN) provides a useful on-line tool for supporting and supplementing my courses.

I will continue my bloggy ways in the Fall 2018 semester at the Moritz College of Law through this blog to supplement our first-semester 1L Criminal Law course. As the "version 8.0" label in the title of this post highlights, I have built this "new" blog directly atop the blog I have used when teaching this very same course six times before (in Fall 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017) and when teaching a Comparative Criminal Procedure course (in Summer 2012 as part of our great Oxford summer program). I am hopeful that some of you new 1Ls will benefit from (or at least find reassuring) seeing some of the posts and comments that were generated in this space in years gone by via these archives.

So, welcome to the latest re-launch of this 1L Crim Law blogging adventure. I am always pleased when this blog helps to promote a distinct type of student engagement, and it will provide the means for me to share required and optional materials and ideas.

I am excited for your blog and you have a passion for something, you must continue it. People need criminal lawyers out there and we should help them together in guiding them and solving their legal issues.
