Law is Cool

I just came across a great Canadian Law School Blog and Podcast - Law is Cool (http://lawiscool.com/)

I'm going to copy directly from the About Page, because I was so impressed, and I'm sure they won't mind if I plug them a bit here:

Law Is Cool is a new blog and podcast addressing issues related to law school and the legal field with a Canadian focus.

The contents are intended for three broad audiences:

1) Current and potential law students

2) Graduates reviewing for their bar exam

3) Members of the general public interested in learning more about the law

Law Is Cool is intended to be an exciting and engaging resource for all three groups. This require your participation to make it happen. If you are a first year law student in Canada, feel free to contact us about joining the team.

The Team:

And a good way to get our attention too!

Thanks for the mention. It is a lot of work, but we try to spread it out among the team while keeping up with law school.

We always welcome more contributors (limited to 1Ls only right now).
