Innovative on-line research project: ACS Research Link

I am pleased to see from the ACS Blog this intriguing announcement:

ACS is pleased to announce the launch of ACS ResearchLink: Connecting Law Students and Lawyers Committed to Justice.

ACS ResearchLink creates a valuable online resource for the legal community by collecting legal research topics submitted by practitioners for law students to explore in faculty-supervised writing projects for academic credit. Practitioners will receive a copy of the resulting student papers, which ACS will post in a searchable online library. Follow these links to search or browse currently available research topics.

This looks like a great idea, and I hope any readers who participate will report on their experiences in the comments.  Helpfully, other lawprof blogs like Volokh are also giving this project some attention.
