Feedburner support has ended -- options are available!

Feedburner is no longer supported by Google as an RSS/Email subscription service. 

Unfortunately RSS reader services have migrated from a publishing model to a user subscription model, so there is no comparable technology platform in the marketplace. The Law Professor Blog Network can no longer support email publishing of RSS feeds. 

The links in the header which offers the email subscription service will be removed.

However, RSS feeds will still be available for every blog and blog readers can still use whatever RSS Reader they prefer to subscribe via those feeds.

We recommend FeedlyNewsBlur, and Inoreader.

Happy Halloween!

J0412052Many law school classes have one or more holidays which are especially relevant.  For example, Family Law has Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and Father's Day, Labor Law has Labor Day, Environmental Law has Earth Day, Military Law has Memorial Day, and Law and Religion has Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, etc.

Halloween, with its fascination with death, may be the most relevant holiday to those of us interested in wills, trusts, estates, probate, and estate planning.

So, however you celebrate, have fun and be safe!

Day_music_diedWriting this blog from Lubbock, Texas, today is especially significant as the 61st anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly (a Lubbock native), Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper (Jiles Perry Richardson, Jr.), and the plane's pilot.

Like most Americans, Buddy Holly died intestate.
