Slate Puts its Convictions on Hold

Just four months after launching its legal blog, Convictions, the online magazine Slate is putting the blog on a sabbatical. The blog's editor, Phillip Carter, an associate at McKenna Long & Aldridge in New York, explained:

Over the past four months, Convictions has reached hundreds of thousands of readers and contributed a great deal to America's legal conversation. However, we have decided to take a sabbatical. Instead of running Convictions as a continuous blog, we'll call on our excellent roster of contributors when news breaks, and run their exchanges as a multi-part conversation, as we do Dahlia Lithwick and Walter Dellinger's Supreme Court conversation at the end of term.

Carter added that he would be taking a leave of absence from Slate to serve as the Obama campaign's national veterans director. Earlier this week, I posted here about our podcast interview with one of Convictions' more notable contributors, U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner of Boston. She was just one of a roster of contributors that included legal scholars, legal journalists and practicing lawyers. Even at just four months, it was a good run.
