A Great Resource: Social Science Research Network

SSRN Logo.pngI’ve occasionally downloaded scholarly papers from the Social Science Research Network, usually after seeing them mentioned at the Legal Writing Prof Blog. But until that blog’s recent post about how to stay up-to-date with the latest articles on legal writing, which provides links for subscribing to legal writing articles, I hadn’t really poked around SSRN very much. I took the time to do so this evening, and discovered there are some terrific features. Besides the subscriptions, there is a “briefcase” feature that allows you to accumulate articles of interest for later access. Going though the subscription list, I flagged about 30 papers published just this year. I’ll probably be posting links to many of them in the coming weeks. In the meantime, go to Legal Writing Prof Blog’s post for the links regarding subscriptions.

Trial Lawyers, Did You Know About This?

A site that tracked back to this post of mine looks like it might be of interest to my trial lawyer readers.  The site juryexperiences.org subheads its page, “What Really Happens On Juries.”  It opens to a “News & Opinion” section that is headed “Selected clippings from blogs and the press, with links to sources” (which is where they linked to me).  The most intriguing area, at first glance, appears to be this link: Read, post and discuss jury experiences on our discussion forum!

That might be worth exploring1
