Just what the world needs...

another blog.

This new blog, maintained by Mark Bender, will be primarily concerned with professional aspects of my life - the law, the teaching of law (in particular the teaching of law to non-law students studying Business or Commerce), legal research and academia generally.

There are many views expressed about the role (or even necessity) of blogs by academics - see for example - but it is undeniable that blogs and other forms of (more accessible) self-publishing are going to continue to increase in terms of both the content they provide and the number of readers they attract. This is poignantly illustrated by Time magazine's Person of the Year award for 2006 -

So Mark Bender's views, experiences and reflection, for what they're worth, will follow on this blog.
