Welcome to our Pace Law Library blog! We began writing this blog in July 2009 with the goal to write about law library, library events, legal writing and research, online legal resources, government documents, digital information, courts and new decisions, current news, and legal trends. You can see our original blog here, which now serves as archives.
In 2010, we decided to upgrade and beautify our blog. As a result, in August 2010, we moved our blog to WordPress platform. Here, we have continued writing and bringing you news and information in the areas of Criminal, Immigration, International, and Business & Finance & Securities Law. We also feature posts related to Law and Technology, Legal Research and Writing, Professional Responsibility and special posts for law students.
Health Information from Pace (HIP) focused segment of our blog was added in December 2012. HIP aims to keep the reader up-to-date on legislative, regulatory, and judicial developments, government documents, white papers, studies and other relevant information and documents in the health law field.
We are happy to introduce our newest addition - Environmental Notes (formerly the independent blog PEN-e, a 2011 Lexis Nexis Top 50 Environmental Law and Climate Change Community award winner). We are adding this newest focused segment of our blog in September 2013. It provides updates and news as well as substantive discussions in the areas of Environmental, Energy, Land Use, Animal, Natural Resources, and Agricultural Law. Related legal research tips, techniques and environmental resources are also featured.
Enjoy reading, leave us a comment, or contact us to suggest announcements or topics for posting.
