INTRODUCING: THE LITIGATION SECTION’S TOPIC BANK PROJECT
The Litigation Section of the Utah State Bar is developing a project designed to help law students in Utah. We are creating a website whereon attorneys and judges can post topic ideas for student papers, law review articles, or bar journal articles. Law students can then claim the topics. We invite you to send your topic ideas (however undeveloped) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For our reference, please provide your name and bar number with your submission. Your submission will be listed anonymously, and your identity will not be disclosed to any student without your prior permission. We are excited about the help this will be to law students and appreciate your sending in any topic ideas you have.
