U. Ilinois College of Law’s Website Features Its Bloggers
The University of Illinois College of Law’s website now prominently features its professor bloggers — a link for blogs on the website’s front page. When you have Larry Ribstein, Larry Solum, Christine Hurt, and Linda Beale as your bloggers, that’s something to brag about. The school even has a page with an RSS feed of posts by the school’s bloggers.
This is very cool — I’m all for law schools bestowing attention, praise, and lots and lots of money on their blogging professors. But I do wonder, with regard to the use of the RSS on its website, whether the law school is assuming any risk of liability for the posts of its bloggers.
