The American Constitution Society this week launched ACS ResearchLink, a project that links the research needs of legal practitioners with law students who perform the research for credit. The idea is that practitioners submit topics they need researched, law students select from among those topics to perform the research under faculty supervision for academic credit, and the resulting papers are provided to the practitioner and also added to a searchable online library. To learn more about this, review the FAQ or this outline of how it works.
