This week the environment took center stage, with David O’Connor writing about the expansion of clean energy policies; Sheila Millar and JC Walker on Amazon’s $1.5 million settlement for deceptive biodegradable claims; and Stuart Kaplow on, yes, you read that right, a multimillion dollar award in a sustainable hog case. Here’s…

Raiborde posted about the Supreme Court’s reversion of the Ninth Circuit’s grant of a preliminary injunction on President Donald Trump’s “travel…
This week was decidedly not easy, but a number of our bloggers covered this outpouring of terrible news with aplomb.

Silverman dropped everything to represent women and children detainees with the CARA Family Detention Project. Barbara S. Mishkin also focused on…

Happy GDPR Day, and happy Memorial Day weekend! This week our Top 10 includes a little bit on the GDPR, with Kerri Crawford and Adriaan Louw’s post on the impacts of the EU’s GDPR on businesses in South Africa, and a little bit of monkey business for the three day weekend. In the instance of John Delaney’s post it’s literal monkey business, as he discusses the litigation of the “monkey-selfie case.” Other great posts this…
This week’s edition of the Top 10 in Law Blogs takes on some heavier topics, including depression, major life changes, and cyber fraud.
