Welcome to The CockleBur. The idea behind this blog is to give you great writing about the law and life from a variety of perspectives and ideologies. On the blog you can expect to read everything from opinion articles to scholarly posts to book reviews to articles on current legal events. You will also find a significant amount of information about applying to and attending law school. In addition, our host—Cockle Law Brief Printing Company—happens to be one of the largest producers of U.S. Supreme Court briefs and so you will find Supreme Court merits briefs posted the day they are filed with the Court. We hope that The CockleBur cultivates interactive debate, so please, if you have something to say about a particular post, we welcome you to leave comments. I hope you will enjoy our eccentric mix of everything legal.
