In case it isn’t already quite apparent, we at LexBlog pride ourselves on having created a true network, one comprised of thousands of insightful and influential lawyers. It’s exciting then that we get the opportunity to partner with a similar network, as we do this week, one on the other side of the globe. And, at the same time, we also had the opportunity to help a law firm—one of the biggest in the country—continue to grow out their own network.
- It isn’t the first African legal publication to join the LexBlog network, but it may be the most high-profile: Lawyers for Africa is the official blog of LexAfrica, the largest and most experienced African legal network with members in 24 African countries and over 500 lawyers total. This publication will shine a light on LexAfrica’s members and share their knowledge on a number of different areas of the law. So far, they have some excellent commentary on renewable energy, legislative developments in mining and LexAfrica itself.
- And while it’s a different kind of network, it’s still an impressive one: Seyfarth Shaw‘s array of legal publications—many of which are on employment law, but not this one—grows to 11 with the launch of the Consumer Class Defense Blog. In their own words, this blog aims to be “a unique resource for executives and corporate in-house counsel to obtain timely developments, trends and game-changing decisions in the area of consumer class action law.”
