Since I started this weblog in January, 2004, I've written 947 posts, enough material for a good-sized book. Most of these posts are assigned to one or more categories. You can get to these categories by clicking on the list that appears on the left side of the weblog. I've also listed the categories here, followed by the number of weblog posts that have been assigned to each:
Here's what Molly McDonough and Sarah Randag had to say--
Beyond the Underground is where we go to keep tabs on St. Louis lawyer/writer Evan Schaeffer. There he lists links to his latest practice management posts from Trial Practice Tips Weblog. A favorite, however, is his “Weekly Law School Roundup” of worthy posts from future lawyers.
In the early days of blogging, I wrote an article for the Illinois Bar Journal titled "What Weblogs Can Do for You." That article was published in mid-2004,a long time ago in Internet terms. Blogs were something new. You could even make the claim, as I did in another post, that "Generally speaking, lawyers don’t read weblogs."
The other post was titled "What's the Use of This Weblog," and listed some of the reasons I decided to keep blogging after trying it out for a year. In the ensuing five years, things have changed quite a bit. Now some of the same lawyers who would ask me, "Why are you wasting your time on the Internet?" have weblogs of their own--not to mention consultants who'll teach them how to use them.
Lately, I've noticed a couple of other "why should a lawyer blog"-type posts. If you're thinking about blogging yourself, you might want to take a look--
To balance things out, I wanted to call attention to two other weblogs -- this time from the defense side -- whose authors work hard to write detailed, well-researched posts.
Drug and Device Law. Written by lawyers Jim Beck and Mark Herrmann (of Dechert LLP and Jones Day), the weblog contains "personal views of various topics that arise in the defense of pharmaceutical and medical device product liability litigation." Representative recent post: "Wyeth v. Levine -- First Real Thoughts."
