If you don't yet know what area of law you want to write about, browse the legal news sites on this page for inspiration.
Browsing general legal news sites and newsletters can alert you to new trends, unresolved problems, and reports of interesting new cases. Opinion pieces can introduce you to provocative new ideas and issues. Here are a few particularly useful legal news and opinion sources:
Westlaw Bulletins summarize "recent federal and state judicial, legislative, and administrative activities," and are organized by jurisdiction rather than by topic.
Selecting the link to any of these Bulletins will automatically retrieve the most recent news, provided that you are a Westlaw subscriber and have already signed on to Westlaw. You don't need to run a search unless you want to look for specific terms or change the date range.
