On blogs, clinics and court advocacy

Thanks to law.com, here are two interesting piece about modern developments in court advocacy:

  • From Tony Mauro, this piece highlights that a number of  highly-regarded law schools "are launching Supreme Court litigation clinics this fall and others, we hear, are not far behind."
  • From Howard Bashman, this piece suggests that blogs help make the internet "a vast amicus brief through which legal experts who are otherwise unconnected to pending court cases may potentially influence their outcomes."

Combining the ideas from both these intriguing pieces, I wonder if any law school has thought about launching a legal blogging clinic with an emphasis on court advocacy.
