Linder's Famous Trials

I trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Sincere thanks to the Legal History Blog for the link to Professor Douglas Linder's Famous Trials website. This is an outstanding site that deserves your attention. Right now there are 55 famous trials showcased on this site. I first became aware of this site in 2002 when there were only 32 trials on the site; Linder continues to add trials.

Professor Linder has posted an abstract of his site entries as a Working Paper in SSRN. You can find the abstract about the O. J. Simpson trial here. This a wonderful example of how the dissemination of scholarly legal information has been evolving: from website to abstract to article. If you want to find more of his scholarship just do an author search of SSRN. Linder now has 60 abstracts on SSRN with a commensurate number of downloads.
