The Codicil, the on-line companion to the Estate Planning & Community Property Law Journal at the Texas Tech University School of Law was recently recognized in Robert Ambrogi, WEB WATCH: Academic Innovation, Law Technology News, April 2009.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Law schools have long been innovators online. It was at a law school, after all, that the first web browser was developed for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows. To begin to list some of these trailblazers would simply exclude too many others.
Recent projects launched online with the support of law schools show that there is no waning of clever and useful ideas coming from law students and faculty. Here are some examples: * * *
Estate planning forum. Students at the Texas Tech University School of Law recently launched The Codicil * * as an online companion to the school's Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal * * *.
The journal is the only studentled law journal devoted to national coverage of estate planning, community property, and related legal topics. Founded in 2007, it recently published its first edition.
The Codicil is intended to supplement the print journal with articles, comments, book reviews, case-law updates, and other pertinent information related to estate planning and community property.
The editors hope the site will allow further discussion and exploration of articles published in the print edition and also highlight additional topics. "We hope the site will become a useful and dynamic resource," they write.
As you can see, innovation online is alive and well at law schools throughout the country.
