US law news ...

JURIST is a legal news and research service produced by mostly-volunteer law student reporters, editors and web-developers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. It concentrates on legal issues with "significant jurisprudential, social and political implications" and is quick to link to the primary sources behind the news.

Commentaries are written by legal experts drawn from academia, key policymakers and legal practitioners around the globe.
