The start of a new school year is a great time to become acquainted, or reacquainted, with JURIST, the real-time legal news and research site that keeps you up to the minute with legal news from the United States and around the world. Written and maintained by faculty and students at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, JURIST is self-described as "the world's only law school-based comprehensive legal news and research service."
You may have noticed that the Law Library's home page features continuous feeds from JURIST with breaking legal news. But JURIST is much more. It's a great web resource for background, law faculty analysis and commentary, primary documents, and video clips on many legal topics. Check it out.
