Chaotic at times but inclusive of all, led by a man of vision, and dedicated to a worthy objective. Yes, that describes the campaign for civil rights led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others during the 1960s; it also is an apt description of this week's Blawg Review #247.
In honor of MLK Day, Gideon returns to the Blawg Review hosting fold and at his a public defender blog offers an excellent review of the best of the past week's legal blogging. Highlights include considering the nature of our profession's service to others, using new technologies for good and ill, and (of course) appreciating Dr. King's impact on our society. Though not tied to this week's Blawg Review, Charon QC and Gideon recently did an excellent podcast together. The death penalty in the United States, United Kingdom, and elsewhere is discussed, along with other criminal justice and current topics.
The Scots Law Student will host next week's Blawg Review.
