Fireplace Blog Tackles Public Policy for Third Year

9/8/2010 | Facebook|Twitter|Email

With recent topics spanning human rights law, securities arbitration and no fault divorce, the Albany Government Fireplace blog has entered its third year of publishing student-generated content on recent developments in government law and policy. 

The Albany Government Law Review (AGLR) launched the Fireplace in fall 2008 as the first student-written and edited law blog in the country. Posts, written by members of the AGLR, resemble shorter versions of law review comments and include citations, as well as the opportunity for readers to interact via comments.

The Fireplace is written to inform the lay reader, as well as local and state policymakers, on the possibilities within the law to improve government administration on all levels.
