The Illinois Law Review Online is excited to announce its new blog section. In an effort to cover the current events of the legal industry, ILR Online’s blog section will publish shorter, timely content exploring current legal issues and news. Our first post, Forum Shopping in the Golden State, is written by Julia Zousmer, an associate practicing product-liability and mass-tort litigation at Sidley Austin. The post explores the state of forum shopping in California following the California Supreme Court’s 2016 decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court (Anderson).
ILR Online invites students, professors, and practitioners to submit pieces for publication on the blog. Blog posts typically run 1,000 to 3,000 words. To submit a blog post for publication consideration, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
