This blog was created because the students and professors and UNC school of government believed that Civil law had to potential to be just as interesting as and possibly exciting as criminal law (they also have an extremely successful criminal law blog).

, you are able to find writings about other parts of the law here too. However, it section on civil law has been recommended as one of the best.
