Hey, law students

Things are quiet around these parts blogwise, but shouldn’t all you incoming law students be spending your time prepping for classes anyway? Maybe not, argues Laura Drake in her inaugural blog post for Maclean’s OnCampus.

I worked with Laura at the Ottawa Citizen, where she did the heavy-lifting on our web coverage of the Khawaja terrorism trial. She also contributed what was consistently some of the sharpest and funniest blogging in the country on the 2008 federal election. Anyway, she’s just left the Edmonton Journal for law school, and our loss is a huge gain for the legal profession. Not a complete loss it seems though, since she’ll be contributing a regular law school blog to the fun show Carson’s running over there.
