The start of a new school year is the best time to become acquainted with JURIST, the real-time legal news and research site that brings you the very latest legal developments from the United States and around the world. Created 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."
The Law Library's home page offers continuous feeds from JURIST with breaking legal news. But JURIST is so much more: a great resource for background on national and international legal issues, updates on new legislation, and commentary, with timely links to case decisions and other primary materials "behind the legal news" that are not often found on standard news sites.
