We learned yesterday that two of Pace Law School's environmental law blogs, PEN-e, maintained by Jack McNeill, the Associate Law Library Director and current chair of the Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section of the American Association of Law Libraries, and GreenLaw, which is maintained by our environmental law faculty, have been recognized as among The Top 50 Blogs for LexisNexis's Environmental Law & Climate Change Community. According to the press release,
These top blogs offer some of the best writing out there. They contain a wealth of information for all segments of the environmental law and climate change industry, and include timely news items, expert analysis, practice tips, frequent postings and helpful links to other sites and sources.
These blogs also show us how environmental and climate change issues interact with politics and culture. These sites also demonstrate the power of the blogsphere, by providing a collective example of how bloggers can—and do—impact and influence the law and business in the environmental and climate change arena.
Each of the Pace environmental law blogs fills a niche. GreenLaw supplies insightful analysis and commentary about environmental law issues in the news, while PEN-e "provides a gateway to news, commentary, legal research sources, new books and articles, and legislation on Environmental Law, Energy, Land Use Law and related legal topics."
