[JURIST announcement] Over the past couple weeks, several people have asked why JURIST needs to raise funds. You can read all the details on these pages, but the most direct answer is that it all comes back to budget cuts. Due to general economic circumstances completely outside of our control, we are anticipating a significant reduction in funding (meaning several tens of thousands of dollars) from our primary benefactors for our next fiscal year. If not offset, this reduction has the potential to directly affect JURIST's ability to maintain its current operations. This fund drive is one of the efforts that we've recently launched to try to make up the shortfall.
To continue to pursue our mission, WE NEED YOUR HELP. If you value JURIST, please consider donating so that we can continue to bring you the substantive legal news and commentary that you have come to expect and enjoy. If you are a regular reader, you know what JURIST has to offer. JURIST provides a depth of coverage that is oftentimes unavailable in mainstream media, with links to primary source materials and other contextual information that encourages our readers to form their own opinions about the legal developments that affect their lives. JURIST also highlights legal issues and areas that may get left out by regular legal news coverage in mainstream media. All of this is done in an ad-free, registration-free, open environment.
