Student Blogging

Professor Jim Taylor, Visiting Clinical Supervisor at University of Montana last semester writes -

"Last summer I attended a conference that CALI put on in Chicago about using law students and technology to improve access to justice for low income citizens.  Out of that I began teaching a course on Public Interest Lawyering.  The writing requirement for the students is a daily blog about public interest law issues.  There are twelve students in the class, and I divided them into 6 teams.  Each team chose a topic to write on.  One week a team member will write and the other will edit, and the next week the one that wrote will then edit.  In addition the class has begun preparing videos for the local justice court on how to file a pro se complaint in a civil case."

For details on what was posted by the students, check out the site here.
