In reviewing the legal blogs from the 2012 ABA Journal Blawg 100, I noticed one that I had come across in one of my law classes. The blog is called Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog and is edited by Gerry W. Beyer, who is currently a Governor Preston E. Smith Regents Professor of Law at Texas Tech University School of Law.
Professor Beyer’s blog has been listed on the Blawg 100 each of the last three years and is a member of the Law Professor’s Blog Network, a resource that “assists law professors in scholarship and teaching.” The sites on this network concentrate on a particular area of the law and link to updated legal resources and news and information feeds of interest to law professors. Once I subscribed to the Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog, I began receiving daily emails with new links to articles that Professor Beyer had uploaded. In reviewing his blog, I quickly realized it was more than just a forum for his particular expertise or legal issues relevant to his jurisdiction.
Professor Beyer receives updates from various professors of law and experts in the area of wills, trusts and estates, in addition to analysis of legal issues related to the topic across jurisdictions. Professor Beyer then posts brief summaries of these articles with hyperlinks to their full text.
Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog is a great resource for law students currently taking Decedent Estates or anyone interested in this particular subject. The blog contains a monthly archive option to view older posts, all of which are searchable by their meta tags. I recommend visiting and checking out the blog and its resources – a one-stop-shop for legal analysis, updates and news in the area of wills, trusts and estates.
