Article Ideas

I don’t think that writing an article for a legal review/journal would be that difficult, but the topic is so elusive. I had two, what I thought to be very good, topics. So, I log into Westlaw. Remember that online legal resource that spoils us in law school. I search the Journal / Law Review database for one of my topics. Bam! (my kid’s word) An article published in 1994 right on point. This lawyer read my mind – or something like that. Ten years ago though, hmmm, I’m not quite sure how that works. Anyway, I didn’t know whether to be disappointed that my topic was old news, or pleased that I came up with a publishable topic.
I still have one other to look into. Wish me luck!
