Blogs Ranking Law Schools

Read more about it in this Wall Street Journal article which features a blogger and Notre Dame Law School graduate who goes by the name "law firm addict." The blogger invited students to share figures on school representation in law firms' summer-associate programs as well as where federal appeals clerks went to school. The information is posted on lawclerkaddict.blogspot.com and lawfirmaddict.blogspot.com. See also The Alternative Law-School Ranking Scene. [JH]

The Podcasting Legal Guide for Canada

Creative Commons Canada has published The Podcasting Legal Guide for Canada. More than just an adaptation of the original U.S. Guide, this version required an almost complete rewrite of the copyright sections to describe Canadian law, as well as substantial changes to the discussions of trademarks and publicity rights.

Kathleen Simmons and Andy Kaplan-Myrth co-authored the publication with help from the Creative Commons Canada team and the faculty at the Law & Technology group at the University of Ottawa.

The Podcasting Legal Guide for Canada is available for download here in html format and pdf format. [JH]
