New site: Legal Reform Now
LegalReformNow.com, a new website on legal reform, was launched today. The site is managed by the Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), an arm of the United States Chamber of Commerce committed to tort reform at the state and federal level. LegalReformNow.com is intended as a "clearinghouse for legal reform information on the Web sponsored by a diverse coalition of associations, chambers of commerce, think tanks and state-based legal reform groups." Among the supporting organizations is the Manhattan Institute, my employer and this site's sponsor.
Some of Legal Reform Now's features are complementary to ours here, e.g., an archive of legal news stories and recent research, organized by topic (though they use a different, if overlapping, categorization). But Legal Reform Now has a different focus than Point of Law -- instead of an ongoing weblog, and the discussions of and writings by legal academics that we have here, the ILR site includes comprehensive information such as a catalog of briefs on key court cases and bills in state legislatures around the nation. Anyone interested in the issues we discuss at Point of Law should bookmark Legal Reform Now today!
