"Best Practices for Legal Education," edited by Professor Mary Lynch, has again earned a spot in the ABA Journal's Blawg 100, an annual list of the top blogs for a legal audience.

The blog — which was honored in last year's Blawg 100 — is a source of information on current reforms in legal education. It also serves as a community for those interested in the future of legal education to freely exchange ideas, concerns, and opinions.

"Thank you to our readers who care deeply about legal education and who are interested in finding ways to improve it," Prof. Lynch said.

"Best Practices for Legal Education" is managed by Prof. Lynch, assistant editor Jessica Persaud '16, and administrative assistant Eileen Roepe. Collegial contributors include law professors from across the country.

In a statement, the ABA Journal said, "We view our annual list as service to our readers, pointing them to a collection of some of the very best legal writing and commentary on the Web. Yes, we hope those selected are proud of it. But we also hope that our readers will recognize the list itself as another portal to some very vivid, informative and entertaining conversations about issues we all care about.”

The list is available on the ABA Journal website, and will be published in the magazine's December 2015 issue.

Prof. Lynch serves as director of Albany Law's Domestic Violence Prosecution Hybrid Clinic, director of the Center for Excellence in Law Teaching (CELT), co-president of the Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA), and advisory board member to the Journal of Experiential Learning.
