Blogs' impact on legal eduction

Over at Balkinization, Jack Balkin has this fascinating post asking "How do blogs change legal education?"  Here is a snippet:

Does the presence of law professors outside their law school whom they can read everyday change their understanding of the law?  What about the use of blogs in the classroom?  And what about the presence of fellow students (from other schools or from their own institution)sharing experiences about what law school is like?...

I see my work on this blog as a natural extension of my work as a teacher, which reaches not only lawyers and law students but also the general public; naturally I hope that legal blogs also make traditional legal education richer.  But I'd like to know whether law students believe that is so, or whether blogs make legal education less rewarding, less exciting, or more confusing for them. I'd be interested in hearing what people think in the comments section, particularly from students who have been in law school since the rise of the legal blogosphere.

The comments to the post are rich and diverse, and perhaps others here would like to chime in on this great topic.  Posted by DAB.
