The Albany Government Law Review presents the first Fireplace Blog Book. Departing from the Albany Government Law Review’s tradition of publishing only theme- and symposia-based issues, this book focuses exclusively on the articles published on the Albany Government Law Review Fireplace. This is the first year we, as a journal, have decided to publish a blog book and have selected ten of our favorite and most viewed Fireplace articles from the 2010-2011 academic year. In keeping with our journal’s educational mission, our members write these posts to inform the lay reader, as well as local, state, and national policymakers on the possibilities within the law to improve government administration on all levels.
Our ultimate goal of the Fireplace and the Blog Book is to apply the traditional law review production model to collaborative internet publication in the hope of maximizing the potential of law review writing to be timely, relevant, and progressive. Please be sure to check out some of this year’s best articles in an easy to download format:
