‘Ernie the Attorney’ famous in the UK too

January 23, 2006

When the Law Gazette needed a information on law blogs, they went right to the main man, Ernest Svenson, who we all know as Ernie the Attorney. And Ernie captured the essence of lawyer blogs for them.

Blogging, like other Internet communications, is captivating because it transcends ordinary boundaries, physical as well as temporal. And while it may not transcend cultural boundaries, it certainly challenges many people’s views of their culture and the culture of others.

Lawyers are gatherers and purveyors of specialised information. All information, particularly specialised information, is best shared and debated in a public forum. This is precisely what blogs enable.

As I’ve said before, I wish I had Ernie’s grasp of the English language. But I’m more like Mike Ditka, stumbling around like a bull in a china shop to get my point across.
