Sidebar, the Blog for Court TV Junkies
When Court TV was replaced with truTV ("not reality. actuality" programming) this year [our post], fans were left with only six hours of trial coverage, In Session, which is aired from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (ET). But Sidebar, In Session's blog, has been added to the mix. "Sidebar takes you behind the scenes of the day's legal headlines with breaking news and in-depth analysis from In Session's anchors and correspondents."
From the blog's About Page:
At Sidebar, our distinguished anchors and correspondents will bring you the latest breaking trial news, along with expert legal analysis. We’ll tell you what’s coming up on the docket. Our correspondents and anchors take you behind the scenes. We’ll give you our observations, insights, comments and opinions on what is happening in and around America’s courtrooms. We are excited about our new home at CNN.com and look forward to your suggestions and ideas as we continue to develop this new venture.
A Quick Look at Best Practices for Legal Education Blog
Joining Law School Innovation in the blogosphere's U.S. law school reform space, The Best Practices for Legal Education Blog was created with two goals in mind: "(1) to create a useful web-based source of information on current reforms in legal education arising from the publication of Roy Stuckey’s Best Practices for Legal Education (pdf) and the Carnegie Foundation’s Educating Lawyers; and (2) to create a place where those interested in the future of legal education can freely exchange ideas, concerns, and opinions. The blog contributors and editor will attempt to document and record the most recent innovations and academic experiments accompanying the legal education reform movement — and stimulate dialogue between and among all sectors of the legal academy. "
Check out the Blog's Resources page. The project looks promising but it could take some cues from UK's Transforming Initiative [our post] for a more comprehensive approach to using web communications. [JH]

New York Legal Update
The purpose of New York Legal Update is to cover, to the extent possible, important current developments in both civil and criminal law in New York.
From the About Page: Both substantive and procedural developments are intended to be covered. Primarily this will be accomplished by digesting recent cases in the State appellate courts. When appropriate, decisions of the Federal Courts will also be discussed. In addition, however, legislative and regulatory changes will also be covered. This service is intended to reach the legal practitioner and members of the general public seeking legal news and information about the legal process. This service is also intended to act as a forum where I and others will comment on legal developments with the intent of advocating for laws and a legal system which are less complex and better serve the interests of society.
