    Practical Advice
    Public interest lawyers, law students and law professors should be alert to ACS ResearchLink. ACS ResearchLink, now in its third year, is an innovative on-line resource for the legal community. The project leverages previously untapped resources to generate and shares new ideas about important legal issues, while engaging the next generation of lawyers in addressing vital law and policy issues. In a nutshell, the program works by having public interest practitioners submit legal research topics for law students to write on under faculty supervision for academic credit. The topic authors receive copies of the resulting articles and the best papers are published in the searchable ACS ResearchLink e-library. Law students using ACS ResearchLink are also encouraged to have their works published in printed journals. ResearchLink papers have been published in journals including the California Law Review, the Oklahoma Law Review and the San Francisco Law Review.
