If you are looking for a way to keep up with legal news, you might give Law Ratchet a try. This recently launched tool gathers legal news that may be of interest to law students, law faculty, and legal professionals. There is a free app version for the iPad as well as a free web-based version.
This resource gathers together a feed of legal news headlines from publications such as the ABA Journal, Law.com, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, and JURIST along with links back to the original articles. In addition, the interface will allow you to filter the news results by category. Currently, there are 40 categories to choose from including particular practice areas such as banking law, family law, or healthcare. There are also broader categories such as trending topics, top 25 blogs, law school, and litigation. Finally, you can also choose to create your own categories.
Once you find an article of interest, you can choose to save it or share it via email, Facebook, or Twitter. For more information, visit the Law Ratchet website.
