“The fun never stops!” So says University of Pittsburgh law professor Bernard Hibbitts, founder, editor, and publisher of JURIST: Legal News and Research, ( JURIST is the 2006 winner of the People’s Choice Webby Award for the best law Website. Prof Hibbitts has found a few minutes to talk about JURIST and his vision of what the Web can do. The rest of his day is being spent in the “fun” of managing a complex Website, run primarily by a staff of students, academic volunteers, and “commentators” from around the world. On this day, those commentators include bloggers, academics, and lawyers from both sides of the conflict between Israel and Hizbollah. The ability to get content and comment from both sides of a conflict or issue, enhance that content, and publish it without bias is the hallmark of what makes JURIST one of the most unique and respected legal content providers on the Web. Not too bad for a Website that was created on one cold, Pittsburgh morning in February 1996, by a man known primarily as a law professor and legal historian.
