Law Ratchet: Curated Legal Intelligence

untitledCheck out Law Ratchet for a continuous feed of legal information.  Calling itself “curated legal intelligence,” Law Ratchet works like a pre-selected RSS feed reader.  According to the site’s home page, Law Ratchet is an app or a web site that was designed and created by lawyers that “… scans thousands of legal news sites, curating and organizing the articles that matter to you.”

With Law Ratchet, news is delivered directly to your app or laptop, already subdivided into several categories such as Current Legal News, Top 25 Blogs, Corporate Law, Law and Technology, Law School, Legal Industry, Litigation, Policy and Politics, SCOTUS, and Sports Law.  You can save articles to a personal folder and also do a keyword search of the site.  It is a very good current awareness resource so check it out here.
