The Future of Legal Education – again

ELFA logo, via their site.It never rains but it pours: no sooner have I learned about the international Conference on the Future of Legal Education on 20-23 February 2008 in Georgia State University College of Law (blogged about here), but I discover a European equivalent later that month.

The European Law Faculties Association (ELFA) – which was founded in 1995, publishes the European Journal of Legal Education, and currently focuses upon the reform of legal education in Europe – will host a conference on The role of law schools in continuing legal education (CLE) on 28 February-1 March 2008 in Bucerius Law School, Hamburg, Germany (the first private law school in Germany). The programme is here (pdf); in the absence of any Irish speakers that I can see, I am particularly interested in

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
