Business Law Today

Yes, yes, we know. BLT is finally over its head. Time for our mini-theme on water law. But will this affect your practice? You never know -- especially if you practice west of the Mississippi River. Or your client runs a cruise line. Check out our cover story and three more pieces about water. Of course it's possible you may not need substantive information on water law. As is the case with all our mini-theme issues, we have feature articles on subjects that have nothing to do with the mini-theme. In this case, that includes a piece on the newly revised federal bankruptcy law. Hmmm: I think a good number of our readers have something to do with that subject. And then there's a timely piece on business-interruption claims (think Hurricane Katrina). And finally, how are law schools doing teaching business law? The schools have taken care of litigators pretty well over the years; it's time for them to think about business lawyers.
