1 THE NEWS YOU CAN USE FOR MINNESOTA LAW LIBRARY MEMBERS reference desk Editorial Team/Committee: Jennifer Doyle Andrea Fraser Peggy Lahammer Kaythey Windyk Sarah Yates VOLUME 41 ISSUE 3 SPRING 2015 MALL An Inside Look at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law by Simon Canick In general I embrace change. A new project, renova on, service, etc., can bring excitement to work that might otherwise become repe ous. But change can be overwhelming, so ideally you spread it out. At William Mitchell we ve experienced a decade s worth of change in the span of a couple of months. In January we welcomed our first cohort of students enrolled in the Hybrid J.D. program. It was the culmina- on of years of work, including countless hours from members of William Mitchell s Informa on Resources group: pla orm evalua on, development of distanced-based book borrowing procedures, instruc onal design, planning for tech support, academic program development, researching and responding to compliance issues related to online programs, and many others. Just a few weeks later, William Mitchell announced the hiring of its new Dean and President, Mark Gordon, who begins his term on July 1 st. He succeeds Eric Janus, to whom I ve reported since I arrived at Mitchell in Dean Janus has been a mentor to me, and a great friend of the library, so his re rement is sad (or at least bi ersweet), and provokes a fair bit of uncertainty. We re excited for the new dean, of course, but it s hard not to wonder how things will change. Meanwhile, in the months preceding those two major announcements, representa ves from William Mitchell and Hamline were busy nego a ng an agreement to combine the two law schools. As announced on February 13 th, the Mitchell Hamline School of Law (MHSL) will be an independent law school located at William Mitchell s campus on Summit Avenue, and will include staff, faculty, and students from both schools. Assuming ABA acquiescence this summer, MHSL s first entering class will begin this fall. The nego a ons culminated this winter, but they d been offand-on for many years. The two schools kept returning to the table for several reasons. First, Hamline and William Mitchell have similar missions, with a focus on providing broad access to prac cal educa on, both full and part me. Second, their student bodies have similar characteris cs and academic profiles. Third, the two schools strengths are complementary, not duplica ve, with Hamline known especially for dispute resolucontents Ar cle: An Inside Look at Mitchell Hamline School of Law New Members President s Corner....4 Downtowner: Changing Role of Law Libraries....5 Ar cle: Innova on in the Legal Sector..6-7 Ar cle: Law Firm Innova on Ini a- ves..7-8 Ar cle: Judicial Blogging Interview with Judge Pendleton Jobs Announcements CLEs/Conferences

(fn1) Fourth, there has long been a sense that four law schools is too many for the Twin Ci es metro area. (fn2) Reac on to the news has been mostly posi ve. Local media outlets reacted warmly, though o en they viewed the combina on through the lens of financial insecurity, or a larger downturn in legal educa on. (fn3) From a big-picture standpoint, and speaking for myself only, I view the combina on as a posi ve development. I like and respect the Hamline staff, faculty, and students whom I ve met. Furthermore, I m op mis c that the combina on will lead to be er employment prospects for our graduates. More importantly, I see the combina on as a key move within the context of legal educa on today. In recent years we ve seen an economic recession, a media nearly united in ques oning the value of law school, and a historic drop in the number of applica ons. In some ways the environment reminds me of the year 2000 when I got my MLIS. It was obvious then that librarianship was transforming, and many worried that technology and disintermedia on would diminish our profession. Provosts, municipali es, and the popular press suggested budget cuts because everything is online. People asked me if libraries would go the way of travel agencies. I always responded (and s ll do) that there s never been a be er me to be a librarian. I saw opportuni es to enhance and improve services, to embrace technology, and to transform spaces in ways that enhance the mission of the school. Now, as we face a transforma on in legal educa on, I see similar opportuni es and possibili es. For the first me in memory, law schools are changing. Incubator programs, accelerated J.D.s, industry-wide mandates for outcomes, embrace of transparency in employment data, online masters / LL.M. programs, required externships and other experien al programs the list goes on. Mitchell Hamline is posi oned well for this new age. We will have an engaged, dedicated board of trustees, a faculty that's on the cu ng edge of curricular reform, and a tremendous staff. We already have the country's only ABA variance for hybrid delivery. We will keep our deep connec on to alumni and the community. The combina on means that we can focus more of our energy on improving the educa onal experience. Personally I feel like I m at the right place at the right me. But I m anxious too. Partly that s because I love the atmosphere at William Mitchell and I don t know how it will change. It seems to me that the culture of a place is fragile, and can crack under the weight of nego a on and new personali es. The integra on process itself will be difficult and imperfect. MHSL needs ABA acquiescence, and though nobody doubts it will happen, the two schools will con nue opera ng independently un l it does. Con nued separa on will be most pronounced in admissions, where, for an trust reasons Mitchell and Hamline will have virtually no contact before the combina on is finalized. In the mean me we are working daily to plan other aspects of integra on. How will we normalize curricular differences (e.g., first year wri ng / research programs, required courses, etc.)? How will student and financial records be consolidated? How will we resolve differences in , enterprise, and other systems? How can we take the best of both libraries to make our services and collec ons even stronger? With respect to library, we know that MHSL will be served by the Warren E. Burger Library, using its exis ng facili es and collec ons, and including staff members from both schools. Pursuant to the terms of the agree- 2

This spring we will work with colleagues at Hamline to ensure jointly accessible databases, and reciprocal borrowing privileges, among other things. Notwithstanding ming issues and the anxiety that springs naturally from major change, I m op mis c about the library s role in the new school. We will fully support indeed we will endeavor to drive the innova on that occurs at MHSL. We will design and support online / blended programs, promote the scholarly ac vi es of the faculty, acquire and promote new resources for the benefit of students, manage regulatory compliance and copyright issues, incorporate best prac ces into our own teaching, help long- me doctrinal and skills professors infuse technology and new assessments into their classes, design spaces that promote collabora on and ac ve learning, and as always, provide exper se in an environment conducive to effec ve research and study. Truly, I see a bright future for the Burger Library and MHSL. Welcome New Members Andrews Allen Debby Hackerson Minnesota State Law Library Public services law librarian.

4 President s Corner Barb Minor, MALL President In Justspring when the world is mudluscious the little lame baloonman whistles far and wee ~ e.e. cummings As I write this column, lunar calendar spring has begun in Minnesota. We have felt the change of seasons earlier than usual this year, with a run of above-average days to relish. Northlanders are coming out of hibernation, shedding layers, stretching, and turning toward the sun. It is time for sweeping out the dust and cobwebs and opening windows to refreshing air and birdsongs. I have found that my librarian life winds itself around a seasonal cycle as well. Summer in law libraries is about time off, summer associates parked in open offices, and wishing you were outside rather than at the reference desk. Autumn means new faces, classroom stints, and the perpetual hum of baby lawyers needing guidance, as they study or commence their practice in a firm. During the interminable Minnesota winters, our days are indoor-focused and bookended by commutes in darkness at either end. Then another fiscal year begins, with refunded projects and resolutions, and post-holiday activity levels rise. That brings us around to spring, the natural milestone of renewal and growth. What will you be doing in the burgeoning season ahead, as a legal information professional and a MALL member? Here are some possible places to channel your recharged energy and warmed-up brainpower. Apply for a MALL scholarship or grant to continue your education and grow in your career. There is free money to be had for any kind of learning experience that appeals to you, at a time when employers may be stingier about underwriting development expenses. Please take us up on these offers. We only ask that you later share what you ve learned with the rest of us a double shot for one price. Get active in your professional associations and this one specifically. Our spring conference is only weeks away in May, and the program is developing now. Join Todd Fenton on the Education Committee to make this year s event the next best thing. Many hands will make the task more fun and rewarding, and there are many ways to help. Other festivities are yet to come in 2015 that could also benefit from your talents. We will celebrate our sixtieth anniversary this year and bring the Legal Research Institute to the greater legal/library community in the fall. Exercise your urge to be a party planner or a teacher for one night by sharing your social chops or instructional expertise. Say yes to leadership when the Nominations Committee comes calling. At a local level, our chapter will have openings for vice president and secretary-treasurer this time around. MALL also has a legacy of sending leaders to AALL national and to SLA. Jill Strand, SLA s current president, has set us a proud example in both organizations. Or resolve to take on a committee position for one year. That commitment is appreciated. Share your wisdom, queries, or gripes with people who care and understand. You can write something for the newsletter, post to the web site blog, broadcast via the listserv, or participate in a Downtowners lunch -hour discussion. Articles and similar contributions can add a line to your LinkedIn profile and benefit your colleagues. There is a wellspring of creativity bubbling within this chapter, and spring is a great time to let your muse scamper about. What makes you feel proud, or frustrated, or puzzled? Throw open the shutters and give us a holler. Are you ready for spring? Sow the seeds of new possibilities, bloom where you are planted, and let the fruits of your harvest nourish your own career and those who share this profession. How will your garden grow this year? 4

5 Downtowners: The Changing Role of Law Libraries Rebecca Hare Technology and changing business models are driving new roles and responsibilities for law librarians. Knowledge management, legal project management, firm intranet, and records management were the central topics of the March 6 Downtowners meeting. Changing responsibilities discussed at the meeting included the expanding roles of law libraries, current knowledge management practices, and need for cooperation with other departments. Some law libraries have changed their department names to reflect the broader goals and capabilities of the department. For example, Research Services at Robins Kaplan includes resources beyond legal research, such as health care and scientific research, and the Strategic Intelligence Department at Gray Plant Mooty includes legal project management, knowledge management, and firm intranet responsibilities. In terms of the knowledge management role within the department, a few libraries maintain their own databases, such as expert witness, judge, deals, and competitive intelligence databases, and many use knowledge management products, such as WestKM. Participation is central to a successful knowledge management program, and many discussed the need for more firm awareness of library KM resources. A good portion of the discussion revolved around the critical role of the IT department in supporting library initiatives; as Sheri Brenden aptly said, IT is at the hub of change. While some libraries are taking on roles such as password management and Sharepoint maintenance, everyone agreed that developing a closer relationship with IT is beneficial for managing resource updates and maintenance and helping the library realize new technology-driven initiatives. Libraries are also collaborating with marketing and records management departments to further shared goals within the firm. Despite the unmistakable evolution of the traditional role of law libraries, there remains work to be done. While law librarians have innovative ideas in abundance and the skill set to follow through, many libraries face challenges and barriers to fulfilling expanded roles in their firms. Resources, such as staffing and funding, were commonly cited as the greatest obstacles hindering progress in library initiatives. As Charlie Wilson of Lindquist and Vennum said, We re only limited by our ability to devote time to it. It takes staffing to maintain library intranet pages and take on additional knowledge management responsibilities, and funding is essential for purchasing licenses and software updates. Another challenge facing libraries that have taken on a knowledge management role is participation in initiatives, such as InterAction and document management system file sharing. Lindquist and Vennum has had success in this area in its migration to an all-digital file system to improve knowledge management. Their suggestion was to establish a good process first; by spending time on the frontend, there will be less push-back in implementation. It was a lively and informative discussion. Thank you to Briggs and Morgan for hosting the lunchhour event. 5

6 Innovation in the Legal Industry Sector is Valued, but Unstructured and Unfunded By Peggy Lahammer and Jennifer Doyle The legal services industry has been characterized as mature, with little revenue growth-- particularly for law firms. One would think, then, that law firms and other legal organizations would be actively seeking new revenue sources and ways to improve profitability through innovation. However, in the legal services industry it appears as though everyone wants to be able to claim they are innovative, yet very few are successfully accomplishing it. Innovation is the new buzzword in legal, and we hear daily that it s necessary and inevitable. Then why isn t there more innovation happening in our legal services community? And where it exists, what does it look like? SURVEY During February we conducted a survey through MALL e- mail seeking input on innovation programs at member organizations. We received twenty-four responses from a diverse group of respondents: 42 percent from law firms (10 respondents) 24 percent from educational institutions (6 respondents) 29 percent from personnel at courts and other governmental entities (7 respondents) Although many legal services industries prompt for size based on the number of attorneys, we asked for the total number of all employees at their organization and received responses across sizes, with the 1 50 employee range as the largest group, with 8 respondents (33 percent). Although the sample size is too small to create definitive conclusions, we can use the results for directional guidance on the Minnesota legal market and found great insight from the many thoughtful responses. INNOVATION = IMPORTANT? YES! All survey participants agreed that innovation in our industry is either important (6 respondents, or 25 percent) or very important (18 respondents, or 75 percent). Remarkably, however, only 5 respondents, or 21 percent, report that there is formal strategy or program that has been communicated within their organization. Of those with a program or strategy, the focus has been on new processes and products, with some efforts on change in organizational structure and pricing/business models. Here are some examples of informal innovation in our legal community: Flipped classrooms where students learn at home and do homework together during class; this creates a more interactive class than the traditional lecture. Videos short videos are created on research topics for students to watch on demand and to be used as teaching tools outside of the classroom. Mobile libraries moving from print to digital environments: e-books, mobile access, digital libraries. Software: LibGuides, Drupal, SharePoint. Social networking being utilized for marketing and current awareness. New/different services some law firm libraries are becoming more focused on market and business development research than the more traditional role of primary law research. These are great starts for innovation initiatives! The success of these innovation projects is predominately measured by client satisfaction. However, an improvement in the quality of work and productivity also is a measurable outcome. We heard that is it important to measure, as it will help you show ROI to leadership and will help you get buy-in for future projects. BARRIERS TO INNOVATION In our experience, librarians tend to be adaptable, curious learners who are willing to try new things; but, then, why isn t there more innovation happening by MALL members? Here are some of your responses: Lack of funding: 63 percent (15 respondents) Lack of time: 38 percent (9 respondents) Resistance/apathy from others at firms/organizations: 38 percent (9 respondents) Resistance/apathy from leadership: 25 percent (6 re- spondents) Resistance/apathy from staff: 21 percent (5 respondents) (Note: Survey participants could select all applicable answers.) No time, no money, and no support from anyone. It s no wonder innovation isn t happening as much as it should be or could be. As Rebecca Hare points out in her article this month on the Downtowners meeting, IT is at the hub of change. And technology requires time, money, and support all critical resources for innovation programs. She further goes on to tell us that the Downtowners meeting attendees suggest that law libraries develop close relationships with IT departments for the purpose of furthering innovation in our law libraries, or if the IT department is not the hub of change at your organization that you offer to help lead innovation programs. 6

7 Innovation Valued, but Unstructured and Unfunded Continued from page 6 Some survey suggestions for overcoming barriers many of us experience at our organizations to innovation programs and initiatives: Demonstrate long-term cost savings to leadership/ decision makers; illustrate consequences of not going forward with projects. Find alternate funding sources for projects. Set innovation projects in annual goals. Start innovation projects small, and grow them as they become successful. Create a culture of innovation. Put together an ROI for innovative projects include time savings, client satisfaction, quality of work. OPPORTUNITY Innovation is an opportunity to try something new, do something a different way, work with new people, learn new things, and provide new services. Some innovation themes presented themselves when we looked at the survey results as a whole: sharing and collaborating, process improvement, client service improvement, mobility. The survey shows us that there are some significant barriers facing us when it comes to innovation. Yet many innovation experts tell us that people are more creative when given boundaries or limits on their ideas. In the law firm environment in particular, however, personnel have been unaccustomed to business of law pressures and may not have had significant resource restrictions. But, the legal services industry is undergoing a significant transformation and innovation is always more satisfying when there are obstacles that can be overcome. So, let s innovate! (Oh, and please let us know how it goes.) Good luck! Thank you to all participants who contributed their thoughts through this survey BTI Consul ng, BTI Benchmarking Corporate Counsel Management Strategies, 2014, page 16. October 14, 2011, Stephen Sharpiro, Freedom Can Limit Innova- on, 2011, h p://www.innova onexcellence.com/ blog/2011/10/14/freedom-can-limit-innova on/ Law Firm Innovation Initiatives, By Peggy Lahammer Research has shown that innovative businesses grow at a much faster rate (62.2 percent growth rate over five years) than those that are not innovative (20.7 percent growth). Innovation can drive revenue growth and often can make firms more profitable when they leverage innovation to create more efficient processes. Although the legal services industry as a whole has been slow to develop innovation programs and initiatives, in the last three to five years we ve seen several large law firms invest in new client-facing products and services and in new processes and pricing. While the new processes and business models are now being addressed in the context of legal project management and knowledge management programs, new client-facing products and services are less common. Three areas where there has been some innovation in law firm client products and services include: free forms and templates, new service models, and new online resource products. Some firms have begun to innovate by providing free samples of their work product through their firm sites. The goal of these initiatives is for a potential client to upload a free form, review it, and then contact the firm with questions or for advice on how to proceed, resulting in paying clients. These efforts focus on the important value add that firm attorneys provide with context on use of documents, important modifications to documents for unique needs, strategy in use of legal forms, and more general advice on legal strategy. Cooley LLP s CooleyGo provides basic forms in a number of practice areas, while WilmerHale and Orrick are providing specialty forms for entrepreneurs and founders through their WHLaunch and Orrick s Start-Up Forms sites. The strategy to target entrepreneurs may be effective because that group is often operating on very tight margins and needs low-cost or free forms and services. Attorneys hope that they will use the free forms and return to the firm for guidance when their businesses are profitable and they are able to pay for services. Another service area where free legal forms are readily available is in the trusts and estates 7

With some estimates that over 50 percent of all Americans lack wills, this is one area of significant need for individuals. A browser search for free wills will produce links to a number of sites purporting to provide free templates some that even purport to provide state-specific modifications. LawDepot, FreeWillForms.com, and DoItYourselfDocuments are just three of the services available. Technology companies are also getting in on the legal forms action by providing forms to small businesses and individuals who are willing to do it themselves. Legal Zoom and Founders Workbench are just two legal forms providers without law firm backing. Other technology companies are providing platforms for reviewing, signing, and processing documents. One company, Shake, provides a mobile platform to access and sign for for guidance when their businesses are profitable and they are able to pay for services.

Legal Zoom and Founders Workbench are just two legal forms providers without law firm backing. Other technology companies are providing platforms for reviewing, signing, and processing documents. One company, Shake, provides a mobile platform to access and sign simple legal agreements like freelance consulting contracts, with users downloading native Shake templates or uploading their own. Clerky provides form documents for incorporations, convertible notes and employee agreements along with document-generator and progress-tracking tools. Docracy applies the Git-Hub treatment to legal documents, allowing users to tag and up-vote individual documents. Rocket Lawyer provides subscribers with documents and attendant instructions plus the ability to consult remotely with an actual lawyer. While most large firms now have client extranets to share matter-related documents, a couple of firms have leveraged technology and their vast document repositories to deliver products and services over the Internet. Littler Mendelson, the employment law behemoth, has enjoyed rapid growth over the last decade in part as a result of their strong innovation and knowledge management initiatives. They now have at least seven unique products and services directed toward their clients specific labor or employment law needs. For example, their Case Smart platform provides clients with a risk assessment analysis after they enter details of EEOC charges levied against them. Remarkably, they also now compete against the large legal publishing vendors with their GPS platform. Subscriptions to Littler GPS give access to fifty state and federal legal surveys on fifty-five research topics, delivered with analysis and links to the primary law sources. They boast that their service is updated weekly and available with different subscription models. Similar to Littler s strong online presence, Latham & Watkins also has waded into the online product and service model. They deliver online resources in three subject areas: False Claims Act Resource Center, the Latham Network a training and education platform and the Master Limited Partnership Portal containing partnership template documents. In Minneapolis, Winthrop & Weinstine has created Winthrop Labs, an innovation consultation service that identifies white spaces in various industries to help guide clients toward commercially viable product and service concepts for development. Finally, Allen & Overy, a global law firm based in London, is addressing disruption in the UK legal services industry by creating online legal subscription compliance services for clients, contract attorneys for clients, and document review services. Innovation in UK, Canadian, and Australian law firms are inevitable due to alternative business structure (ABS) legislation. Although ABS approval appears unlikely in the near term by state bars in the U.S., pricing pressure by U.S. clients and their demand for greater predictability in outcomes and better management of matters, should provide sufficient incentive for firms to fund strategic initi- What Sets Breakthrough Innovators Apart PWC s Global Innova- on Survey 2013: US Summary, PWC, h p://www.pwc.com/us/ en/consul ng-services/global-innova on-survey.jhtml.

9 Judicial Blogging: An Interview with Judge Pendleton by Liz Reppe How were you inspired to start your blog? The Pendleton Judicial Training & Education Blog has an interesting prehistory. Five years ago, in early 2010, I started authoring the Judicial Training Updates. The updates were distributed biweekly via and were designed to be short, concise, simple-to-read judicial tips on legal topics that every judge and attorney should know. The training updates were designed to fill what I perceived to be a gap in Minnesota judicial education. The concept started small, and the initial distribution list was limited to my local bench. The popularity of the training updates grew, and by the end of the second year approximately 85 percent of all state court judges were on the list. Over the next several years the e- mail distribution list soared into the thousands, and now it includes 95 percent of all state court judges, the Minnesota County Attorneys Association, the state public defender s office, all four law schools, MSBA, MNCLE, the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, hundreds of private attorneys and law firms, and numerous public service and volunteer lawyer organizations. Given the growing popularity of the training updates, creating a blog that was dedicated to the training and education of the Minnesota trial bench and attorneys seemed like the next logical step. In August 2014, with the help of state court administration, the Pendleton Judicial Training & Education Blog was created. The blog is the official repository for all past and present training updates and also serves as a one-stop legal resource library with hyperlinks to numerous legal research and reference sites. Did anyone in the Minnesota judicial branch have any concerns about a sitting judge having a blog? (Did you ask permission?) The initial suggestion to create a judicial training blog came from Chief Justice Lori Gildae during the summer of The chief justice was very supportive and authorized state court administration to provide the technical assistance needed to help me create and organize the blog. According to the Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards, as long as I kept the blog postings factual and did not express personal opinions, there would be no ethical concerns with a district court judge managing a training blog. There was, however, one concern I was asked to address. The training updates had become so popular that many members of the bar began viewing the updates as the official voice of the district court bench, which they clearly are not. Disclaimer language was added to the blog to address that concern. The research and writing of the training updates and blog posts are all done on my own time and are considered my personal work product. Do you have any idea how many people subscribe to your blog? (Are any usage statistics available?) Since August 2014 the blog has recorded over 28,000 hits. In addition to the original distribution list (which is still active with over a thousand addresses) an additional 643 persons have subscribed to the blog. How do you decide what topics to include? Although the training updates are available to anyone with an interest, they focus primarily on issues relevant to judges and are written from a judicial perspective. With each update and post, I try to focus on topics or questions that judges are confronted with on a regular basis. My ideas come from appellate court decisions, legal articles, training journals, and suggestions from my colleagues. Many of the training updates are designed for use "in court" by judges and attorneys as resource "cheat sheets" to ensure the making of a full and complete record. The most important question is always, Is this a topic or question that as a district court judge I need to know in order to do my job? 9

10 Judicial Blogging: An Interview with Judge Pendleton by Liz Reppe Continued from page 9 What kind of feedback have you received since it started? Who have you gotten feedback from? (Attorneys, judges, general public?) My motivation in continuing to author the updates and manage the blog is based, in large part, on the tremendous outpouring of support I regularly receive from the bench, the bar, and members of the general public. Recent updates have been posted to California s leading CLE website and have been used in several national domestic abuse seminars. I ve been told that many judges and attorneys bookmark the blog for easy access while in court. Newly appointed judges report that the training updates and blog are indispensable resources that they use on a regular basis. The blog also recently received national recognition from legal commentator and author Robert Ambrogi. Do you have a schedule for posting, or do you post just when a topic of interest strikes you? I make every effort to issue a training update and post to the blog once every two weeks. My goal is to issue twenty-four training updates annually. I would love to post more frequently if I had the time, staff, and resources. I recently posted to the blog the one hundredth judicial training update. Have any other judges contacted you about starting their own blogs? No. Although there are thousands of blogs written throughout the country by attorneys and other legal professionals, very few of those blogs are written by judges. The reason for that is simple. The format for most blogs encourages open-ended, free flowing expressions of personal thoughts and opinions. While that type of blog format does not present ethical problems for most attorneys, it does for judges. I do not follow a typical blog format. My blog posts are thoroughly researched and highly structured judicial training updates designed to address a specific topic or answer a legal question of interest to judges and attorneys. The blog also serves as a one-stop judicial resource library with hyperlinks to numerous research and reference sites. The section titled "Judges Only - Restricted Site" can only be accessed through the Minnesota Judicial Network. To the best of my knowledge the Pendleton Judicial Training & Education Blog is the only one of its kind in the country. Do you read the blogs of any other judges? Yes, Hennepin County Judge Kevin Burke writes an excellent blog for the American Bar Association, and Wright County Judge Steve Halsey writes a blog on family law issues and juror misconduct. Both blogs are excellent, and I highly recommend them. Are you aware of any other judicial officers in Minnesota who use social media in this way? No, I m not, but the interaction between blogging and other forms of social media raises all sorts of exciting possibilities. Just recently, on the advice of several well-known bloggers, I started linking the blog posts to my LinkedIn and Facebook accounts. I am also exploring the possibility of linking a Twitter feed to the blog. Who originally created and now updates the Wordpress blog page? During the summer of 2014, the state court information technology department assigned Mariah Miles to help me create and organize the new blog site. Almost everything I know about organizing and 10

11 Continued from page 10 Judicial Blogging: An Interview with Judge Pendleton by Liz Reppe managing a blog site I learned from Ms. Miles, and I will be forever grateful to her. The blog is registered to me and all blog posts are considered my personal work product. Although Ms. Miles is available to help if I experience technical problems, the day-to-day management and updating of the blog is my responsibility. Is there anything else you d like to share about your experience with the blog? The one thing I have learned over the past six months is that the power and influence of blogging is undeniable. I am surprised at how much I have grown to enjoy blogging and how much personal satisfaction I get from providing a training service that has been so universally embraced by both the bench and bar. I have become a shameless promoter of the blog and would encourage your readers to log in and spend some time exploring the site. The blog is a constant work in progress, and I welcome comments and suggestions on how the site could be improved to better serve the needs of the bench, bar, and the general public. The Pendleton Judicial Training & Education Blog is located at or simply Google Pendleton judicial training or Minnesota judicial training.

Signed by King John of England in June 1215, Magna Carta s historic guarantees have echoed down the centuries and remain at the very heart of our legal tradition. The University of Minnesota Law Library is celebrating Magna Carta s anniversary with a special exhibition, Magna Carta, 800 Years: Rights and the Rule of Law, at the Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center. Drawn from the Library s outstanding collection of historical law books, the exhibition traces the history of Magna Carta from its signing, to its influence in early modern England and colonial America, to the constitutional frameworks that it shaped. The exhibit showcases over 75 items, at the center of which is the Library s outstanding collection of early printed editions of Magna Carta. Through the exhibit we invite visitors to explore the great history of Magna Carta, as well as its contemporary relevance. The exhibit is on display now through December 15, 2015, at the Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center of the University of Minnesota Law Library. For more about exhibit items, please stay tuned to our blog (http:// riesenfeldcenter.blogspot.com/). For more information or directions, please contact Ryan Greenwood ).
