The Race to the Bottom is unusual in that, since its foundation in 2007, students have been very involved in the management and content of the Blog. One noticeable example is that students sign on to the Blog after a writing competition then begin writing posts. The posts go through edits by the student staff of the Blog and by faculty. Students writing posts learn new areas of substantive law.
Perhaps more importantly, they develop important writing skills. The posts do not reflect a scholarly, law review style of writing. The posts are written in a practical, accessible fashion that emphasizes brevity and clarity. More than merely make this claim, we will provide the evidence. For the next two weeks, we will publish student posts.
