@LawBlarg

@LawBlarg is an experimental form of legal writing attempting to combine the best aspects of formal legal writing (i.e., law journals) with the best aspects of informal legal writing (i.e. blawgs). More scholarly than blawgs, less serious than full-length articles, the posts are specifically designed for an online readership.
