In Case You Missed It (Law)
Digest for Tuesday July 9, 2024

Greetings, my name is David Colarusso. I'm the director of Suffolk University Law School's Legal Innovation & Technology (LIT) Lab. With one foot in law and the other in tech, I really want the open web to thrive, esp. #LawFedi. So I created a bot and this site to help folks discover great law-themed content. You can get a look at their algos/workflows here.

If you like what you see, consider joining Mastodon and following, the bot feeding this page content.

FWIW, here are some law-flavored server suggestions: (1) (legal general interest); and (2) (legal academics). Also, here are Some Tricks [For] Making Mastodon Way More Useful.
