December Retrospective

Share this post:

We love it when other bloggers talk about In Custodia Legis.  A few of our posts were discussed across the legal blogosphere this month.  The Tools for My Trade? post was mentioned on the Legal Informatics Blog.  Nathan’s Laws in a Crusader State was highlighted on Dum Spiro Spero.  Hanibal’s post, Congratulations to the People Behind Kenya Law Reports!, received a hat tip from Novalawcity.

Our Human Rights Day event was mentioned in George Mason’s Library and Technology Blog.  After our Blawg Archive post, there were several mentions of our collection including an Associate’s Mind and Legal Skills Prof Blog.  Thanks!

1. THOMAS: The Last Update of the Year
2. Social Networks and French Labor Law: Beware of your Facebook Friends!!
