In a previous post, we told you about how to stay current with New Jersey Legal (& Local) News. Whether using print or electronic versions of legal newspapers and periodicals, staying current with current events may give you an edge in practice.
Legal newspapers or periodicals will inform you of relevant court decisions, the emergence of new laws, changes to existing laws, and may also include substantive legal articles written by experts in their fields (and sometimes, gossip).
Another way to stay current is to have some of that information emailed directly to your inbox. Justia can supplement your daily intake of legal news and analysis. Justia users can subscribe to receive daily newsletters of opinion summaries for the Supreme Court, Circuit Courts of Appeal, and all state supreme courts. That means that it can be as easy as a free and simple registration to stay on top of 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and NJ State Supreme Court opinions (and more). Once you register, you can elect to receive daily opinion summaries by jurisdiction and/or practice area. Each summary is followed by a link to view the case; users will be taken to the case page to find the opinion summary followed by the full-text opinion (HTML or PDF).
Justia also offers a daily newsletter of their Legal Analysis and Commentary column: Verdict.
Verdict columns cover a broad range of legal subjects, including constitutional law, international human rights, new technologies, discrimination, family law, law and economics, defamation, consumer issues, child sexual abuse and animal rights.
These commentaries are written by today’s legal experts.
