Amicus: Net-based scholarship on civil rights and civil liberties
Via John Palfrey:
It's an important idea, I think, at least by way of provocation: can law journals or other institutions publish, as a supplement to their regular mode, shorter, open pieces formatted for the web that have serious work behind them and which link more actively to other arguments, online and offline? Harvard's CR-CL is one of the first to take this plunge. The students have done a great job on this.
Our related effort at the Berkman Center is called Publius: http://publius.cc
John wrote an essay of his own for Amicus' inaugural release: New Public Spaces. Check it out.
And congrats to the CR-CL crew on getting this up and running!
