List of Legal Blogs: An Introduction

I have now posted my entire list of approximately 500 legal blogs. I divided this list into sections to avoid formatting problems. [Update: The list now numbers 686. See here.]

My purpose for compiling this list is to create a taxonomy of legal blogs.

The complete list can be accessed by scrolling down, or by clicking on the individual links here:


As I indicated here, this is both an incomplete and over-inclusive list. Some of the blogs are inactive (i.e. no recent postings). And some of them are not accurately described as “legal blogs.” On the other hand, I expect that there are many active legal blogs missing from the list, especially state and local blogs that I have not yet come across.

I invite readers to make additions to the list. Please feel free to suggest legal blogs that are missing and should be included. However, please do not submit law student blogs or non-U.S. legal blogs. I explain why briefly here, and in comments to this post. Two exceptions: I will accept group blogs by law students which are for a class. And I will accept legal blogs from Canada.

Update: A list of blogs which were included after the original list was made is here.

I'm not sure if mine counts as a "legal" blog or not. I'm a HLS grad and full-time attorney at the Home School Legal Defense Association, but my blog ("Somerschool") covers a lot in addition to the fine points of homeschool law.

You might want to add The Baseball Crank (www.baseballcrank.com). He is a practicing lawyer, and does blog about the law semi-regularly, although the majority of his posts concern baseball or politics.

I'm a lawyer with a legal blog. I blog mostly on US legal developments, but occasionally on those from Canada and the UK. The blog is about half-legal and half-general observational.

What a massive project! I have two blogs relating to employment law. The first is a more general take on the whole topic, the second relates to issues on workplace policies/guidelines/handbooks.

Thank you for creating this list.
