On Law, online: New student-run blog tackles legal
issues of the day
by Pascal Zamprelli
When one thinks of blogs, the word “academic” rarely comes to mind. Scholarly journals, for their part, don’t exactly scream “widely accessible.” A new variety of online publication, the academic blog, attempts to bridge the gap between the ivory tower and the expanding online community, and is gaining in popularity.
A group of students at McGill’s Faculty of Law have recently launched such an endeavor: Legal Frontiers is a student-driven blog that deals with issues of international law and is aimed at a broad and varied audience.
