In the same post that references recent law school grad Ian Best’s passion for blogging and the Wall Street Journal lauding him for showing large law firm associates how valuable blogging is, we get this from Ian.

I should add, however, in the interests of pragmatic realism, that I will NOT be blogging if it becomes a hinderance to job-seeking. I can fully comprehend the reasons why law firms or government agencies would reject any blogging by their employees. If I am asked to discontinue blogging for the sake of receiving employment, I will do so. Professionalism requires a healthy understanding of priorities.

A law firm with some foresight ought to grab Ian before it’s too late. Not only does this kid got the academic creds, but he understands where blogs are taking lawyers and law firms. Law grads like him are few and far between. If LexBlog could land Ian, we’d do so in a New York minute. And we’d have him blogging the day away.

Trial lawyer turned legal tech entrepreneur, I am the founder and CEO of LexBlog, a legal blog community of over 30,000 blog publishers, worldwide. LexBlog’s publishing platform is used on a subscription basis by over 18,000 legal professionals, including the largest law firm in each India, China and the United States.
