Blawg of the Week And More!

Here is a free web service and a good blog courtesy of Tom Mighell at If this information interests you sign up for the newsletter and get more legal websites and blogs.
Jott- Digital Dictation – Jott allows you to send text or email messages to yourself, all by dialing a phone number and leaving a voice message. It also allows you to send a message to a group of people? Jott allows you to leave a message for all of them at the same time and you can specify whether they receive your message by text, email, or voice mail. Great idea and its free!  Look at it 

For the most enterprising law students out there with too much free time, here is another blog for you to pore over for enlightenment on the law:

David Hricik at Mercer University School of Law has a blog on Statutory Construction It will cover developments in the law of statutory interpretation, as well as key interpretations of important statutes.  

For more good legal blogs (Blawgs) check out the Law Professor Blog Network, for a good variety.  I have mentioned this site before but it never hurts to keep mentioning it. It’s that good!
