Reader Feedback: Legal Blogs

This blog post is for reader suggestions concerning specific legal blogs. Are there blogs missing from this taxonomy that have been overlooked, or blogs that have been omitted which should have been included? Are there inactive blogs which have become active again through a recent posting? Readers may provide the names, URL's, and descriptions of legal blogs in the comments below.

Also, have some of the existing legal blogs been mischaracterized? Are there blogs in this taxonomy which belong in different categories than the ones in which they are now? Readers can make their arguments and suggestions by commenting to this post.

This is a great resource. You may want to take a look at http://www.classcaster.org/ and consider adding a category for course blogs. Classcaster is a CALI (http://www.cali.org) service for law faculty and librarians that provides course blogging and podcasting tools. Right now we have a couple dozen active bloggers and podcasters. The podcasts include recorded lectures, lecture summaries, and advice.

You have Truth on the Market (accurately) under Business/Corp, but it is not listed under law professor blogs or group blogs.

My co-blogger and I probably also belong in the small group blog category -- since there are two of us and all. ;-)

I'm a UK based law librarian with a blog (www.lo-fi-librarian.co.uk) and would very much appreciate being included in this valuable resource!

Matt, I added it to small group blogs.
Lo-fi, thanks for your request. Unfortunately, I am only including American and Canadian blogs in my taxonomy. This is because of simple practicality. I would be too overwhelmed if I include blogs from the UK and other countries. Perhaps when law school is over, I will have the time to expand my taxonomy. I would really like to include blogs such as yours. - 3L Epiphany

Indiana Family Law at http://indianafamilylaw.net/ might fit into your list. Thanks for your consideration!

Hi, Ian. Thanks for putting this together for all of us within and without the world of legal weblogs. I'm writing to ask that you place f/k/a [formerly known as ethicalEsq] in your Legal Ethics category.

As the editor of Blawg Review recently wrote: "beyond poetry and punditry, his ethicalEsq Archives is probably the largest collection of client-oriented legal ethics materials on the Internet. Giacalone's worked-up legal blog posts about contingency fees, lawyer advertising, and professional ethics, belie his retiring personality."

We were the first and we're still by far the feistiest legal ethics weblog (and proud of it).

Please add the Georgetown University Law Center Faculty Blog, http://gulcfac.typepad.com/georgetown_university_law/ -- it is a midsize blog now, but I expect it to grow to large group size soon enough.

Posted by: Rebecca Tushnet | Jun 14, 2006 10:16:23 PM

May I suggest those ones?


Posted by: Natalie Gauthier | Jun 23, 2006 1:05:58 PM

Great list. Very thorough and helpful.

Please consider adding E-Commerce Law (http://www.ecommercelaw.typepad.com/)

This is a marvelous resource. I'd very much like my blog to be included: www.lifeatthebar.wordpress.com

Thank you for your efforts!
