New blog added
Posted 5:59 PM by Luke
Ellen S. Podgor (IU-Indy class of '76), a professor and associate dean at Stetson University College of Law, coauthors a blog on white collar crime. It features informative posts as well as an incredible number of useful links and resources on this particular legal subject. Check it out.

I have added it under the 'Legal Academics' section of ILN's blogroll. Once I have some free time over winter break, I will do a general overhaul of the blogroll to weed out defunct blogs and improve its organization.

Andrew Jackson and the Constitution
Posted 12:49 AM by Luke
IU Law's own Professor Gerard Magliocca has a new book out entitled, Andrew Jackson and the Constitution: The Rise and Fall of Generational Regimes. I've long had an interest in our nation's founders and early leaders, so this book sounds quite interesting. Here is part of the description of the book from The University Press of Kansas' website:
Magliocca reinterprets the legal landmarks of the Jacksonian era to demonstrate how the meaning of the Constitution evolves in a cyclical and predictable fashion. He highlights the ideological battles fought by Jacksonian Democrats against Federalists and Republicans over states’ rights, presidential authority, the scope of federal power, and other issues. By doing so he shows how presidential politics, Supreme Court decisions, and congressional maneuverings interweave, creating a recurrent pattern of constitutional change.

Magliocca builds on the view that major changes in American political and constitutional development occur generationally—in roughly thirty-year intervals—and move from dominant regime to the emergence of a counter-regime. Focusing on a period largely neglected in studies of such change, he offers a lucid introduction to the political and legal history of the antebellum era while tracing Jackson’s remarkable consolidation of power in the executive branch.
For those with an interest similar to mine, the book is available for preorder on Amazon.

The mighty state of Indiana [ it's a state of mind really ;-) ] became a state on this date in 1816. It was the 19th state admitted to the union. Check out this Wikipedia article for a refresher on the history of the Hoosier state.

School Website Problems
Posted 11:08 PM by Nate
I want to report that the night before finals it appears is defunct. I have not been able to logon to get my exam number or to get the link to download the newest version of Secure Exam. If you put these trivial (albeit very important) tasks off until the night before, such as myself, you are not alone in your dispair.

I have no idea what is causing the problem, nor am I pointing a finger. I would just like this to serve as notice to my fellow panicking students.
