Young artists and administrative law

At the risk of losing any upcoming popularity contests, I’ll admit to enjoying both children’s drawings and legal research. And when the two are combined, I can’t help but get excited.

So, here’s an enthusiastic “thumbs up” for the Texas Register — the official weekly journal of agency rulemaking for the Lone Star State — which publishes drawings submitted by Texas children on the cover and filler pages of each issue. According to the journal, “the drawings dress up the otherwise gray pages of the Texas Register and introduce students to this obscure but important facet of state government.” Hooray.

If you’re interested in seeing some of the drawings, go here and click on an issue, then click on “all sections.” Or, peruse back issues of the Texas Register in paper on level 3-South of Langdell at call number KFT 1236 .S4

Thanks to Jenn, Nancy, and Mike in the Serials Department for showing me this.
