Last week the editors of the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s RegBlog announced that they are changing RegBlog’s name to The Regulatory Review. As far as I’m concerned, this is a very welcome change.
RegBlog is a go-to source for scholars and practitioners of administrative law and regulation, but it really isn’t a blog, at least not anymore. When I think of a blog (like this blog), it’s about short, sometimes half-baked posts on current issues. RegBlog, by contrast, produces high-quality, often long-form essays that delve into issues more deeply than a typical blog post (though still in a format more digestible that a traditional law review article).
In other words (and with no offense intended for blogs like ours), RegBlog is just too classy to be called a blog. So congrats on the name change!
Here’s the full announcement from RegBlog:
Over the course of seven years, students at the University of Pennsylvania Law School have built this publication—RegBlog—into a globally recognized source of daily news, analysis, and commentary on regulation.
We are delighted to announce that soon we will be changing our name from RegBlog to The Regulatory Review.
The Regulatory Review will help us advance our mission by better conveying all that our publication offers its worldwide audience. Our new name will befit the caliber and quality of the long-form essays that we publish and the level of exacting effort that our team puts into publishing on a daily basis.
Although our name will change, we will keep delivering what has set us apart from other law school-based publications. You can still expect us to publish new content every weekday throughout the year and to continue featuring incisive writing from leading experts representing a broad range of disciplinary and policy perspectives.
In the weeks ahead, we will be finalizing a major redesign of our website, to be located at www.theregreview.org. Once unveiled, the new site will bear our publication’s new name.
We look forward to The Regulatory Review continuing to serve readers from around the world for many years to come.
