« A Collection of Law Review Articles Citing Legal Blogs | Main | Alice in Wonderland Meets 3L Epiphany »

Welcome and Introduction for New Readers

For readers who are here for the first time, this Table of Contents covers my work throughout the semester. Please feel free to stay awhile. I especially recommend A Taxonomy of Legal Blogs, which lists and categorizes more than 600 legal blogs.


3L Epiphany is most likely the first law student blog in the country ever to receive academic credit, which was profiled here: Blogging for Credit. For recent posts on 3L Epiphany about cases and law review articles citing legal blogs, and two interviews with judges about blogging (with very impressive responses), please scroll down.

Your list isn't complete without my site- an in-depth look at the impact of law on culture.

Holmes, I did not include law student blogs in my taxonomy for the sake of practicality.

To quote previous posts:

"I will be focusing on blogs by legal practitioners and law professors. I will not be including law student blogs, simply because there are too many and they are much more difficult to locate and categorize."

"Unfortunately, as I said in my main post, I am not including law student blogs. This is not because I have anything against them (I'm a law student blogger myself, obviously). It's simply a matter of practicality. Limiting my list to legal blogs by attorneys and law professors still leaves me with a tremendous amount of work to do. If I include law student blogs, it makes the project much more overwhelming. Law student blogs are simply harder to locate, and more difficult to classify."

The taxonomy is brilliant but the problem is that it requires you to maintain it. Have you considered turning it into a wiki?

I experimented with a wiki to annotate an entire novel by Umberto Eco and the project went swimmingly-- I got lots of anonymous contributors, almost no vandalism... Not sure what your attitude toward wikis are but it seems ideal for something like your taxonomy.
