Celebrating One Year of Weekly Content on DipLawMatic Dialogues!

One year ago, after an ambitious meeting in Austin, DipLawMatic Dialogues launched an initiative to post at least one post per week for the next year.  A year later, we’ve met that goal and seen our readership blossom. More importantly, we’ve gotten to hear from many more voices within the FCIL-SIS community.

We thought we’d celebrate by looking back at the most popular posts of the last twelve months, and then ten posts you might have missed. Here’s to many more years of consistent content (email Alyson Drake at alyson.drake@ttu.edu) if you have ideas of posts in between official calls for bloggers.
