circuit splits

I'm not sure why someone would devote an entire blog to circuit splits, but it sure makes it easy to find good federal law problems for legal writing assignments.  Creating a problem based on a well-established circuit split is a tried and true method for creating trial brief, appellate brief, and oral argument assignments for law students.  Students assigned to each side of the case will find both helpful and harmful material when they research the problem, and so they'll learn how to handle both helpful and harmful legal authority.  Check out http://www.splitcircuits.blogspot.com.
