I have to confess.

I hate the scholarship updates because I really have a hard time justifying the number of subscriptions it would take to get all the articles that would be of interest.

I suspect most are printed at a loss to the university or sponsoring associations and many if not most copies end up in a law library to rarely if ever be opened up.

Of course the ad supported model wouldn't be of much help online simply because there aren't enough of us out here who would bother to visit, meaning low traffic.

I do wish a different model would emerge though, that allows for cost-efficient purchase of articles of interest.

And with that, I apologize for the off-topic rant.

Mark F's NCAA "March Madness" team was obviously eliminated over the weekend...

Not hardly.

They were eliminated before Selection Sunday.

Mark F:

You're free to hate what you want, but I will continue to put up these updates. A number of our readers are law students, who (luckily?) have free access to various on-line databases at which these articles can be obtained at no charge.

You're certainly right that subscribing to such databases is quite pricey, but you can always stop by the local law school library (wherever you live). Nearly all of these will be available there, if not through a hard copy, then via a "public access" password the law school can offer you.

This will at least be true, I suspect, for state university law schools. I am not as sure about private schools. If you're a lawyer, though, you should be able to get access.

Good luck and I'm sorry about your teams (Drexel?).

Don't take me quite so seriously on this point.

I enjoy knowing there is such work being done, just wish I had easier access.

Some of them are available online outside of the expensive databases. Some of the law journals have their own websites where they post their articles for free. For example, the recent scholarship listed an article on a lawsuit against the 3 major providers of pay-to-play fantasy football leagues. This article (which I wrote) is available at: Anything published in our journal will be there
