In addition to authoring this blog, I’m also attending law school. I’m on the law review at my school and part of my duties consist of checking and editing citations for articles that have been submitted for publication. It’s the most tedious, mind numbing activity I’ve ever done in my life. What makes it worse is legal professors can be lazy, and I mean really lazy, with their research. Take the article I’m working on now. The author cites a fact and what does she give me to support it? Just the name of the author. I also have one here where the author quotes a book. Yet instead of giving an exact pagepoint, the author just cites the entire book.
This is going to be a long weekend.
Let’s look at some links.
