A Collection of Law Review Articles Citing Legal Blogs

[Update: This post has now been revised and updated here.]


I am posting below a 27-page collection of law review articles which cite legal blogs. There are 70 legal blogs cited in this collection. I also included articles from state bar journals. The articles within the collection are organized according to the blog cited.


Besides being of general interest to readers, my hope is that this collection will be especially useful to the participants at the Harvard Law School “Bloggership” symposium on April 28 (details here), which I will be attending.


Not every blog in this collection has been included in my Taxonomy of Legal Blogs. For the purposes of my taxonomy I omitted blogs that were focused primarily on non-legal disciplines or topics. However, such blogs were included in this collection if they were cited in legal articles.


Readers who are aware of additional law review articles that are missing from this collection, or who wish to suggest other changes or corrections, may comment to this post. Because it is the end of the semester I will not be making revisions to this collection until after exams are over. For this reason I ask that any corrections or additions be posted here publicly for the benefit of other readers.


Here is the document:

As its title suggests, Gary O'Connor and Stephanie Tai's "Legal and Appellate Weblogs: What They Are, Why You Should Read Them, and Why You Should Consider Starting Your Own," 5 J. App. Prac. & Process 205 (2003), cites a number of blogs.

I want to join the grumblings of those left out. I've got four law review cites according to Lexis.

With that said, I think your work is perhaps the most important work of a law student this year for the average day to day "John Doe" lawyer. I can't thank you & your dean enough for this project.

With that said, good luck on the job hunt.

Paul, Kimberly, and Nancy: Thank you for posting those articles.
Karl: Thanks very much for the compliments. It was difficult to find the blogs such as yours with names that did not include the usual servers (i.e. "blogspot" and "typepad"). I found several but also know that many were left out. Would you mind listing the four law review articles that cited you here in the comments? That way readers can see them, and it will make my job easier when I revise the list. - 3L Epiphany

I'm the author of the leading legal text book on Netherlands Antilles and Aruba corporate law (in Dutch only). In a footnote I advised my readers to frequently visit Karel's Legal Blog (my blog) for updates; this way they don't have to wait until 2008 when the 3rd edition arrives.

Kind regards,
