Overlawyered: Chronicling the high cost of legal system

A Cato Institute blog:

Overlawyered : Chronicling the High Cost of Our Legal System

The Cato Institute is proud to announce its affiliation with one of the most respected law blogs around: Founded and run by senior fellow Walter Olson, the blog explores an American legal system in dire need of reform, showing how litigation is used as a weapon against guilty and innocent alike, new laws erode individual responsibility, and law firms enrich themselves at the public's expense.

Walter skewers American litigiousness with a careful eye and sharp wit. If you haven't been following Overlawyered, here's what you've been missing:
