LinkedIn Legal Blogging Group update : More features on the way

LinkedIn legal blogsOur LinkedIn Legal Blogging Group, born as an experiment, continues to grow. We’re just shy of 1,000 members.

If you requested to join over the last couple weeks, there may have been some delay in approving your request. LinkedIn was making some improvements to the group management tools and experienced a few bugs.

The new tools should allow me to better serve group members. I’m also told we’re going to see ‘home pages for group members’ and some other group collaboration features in the coming weeks.

In addition to LinkedIn working on group features, I’m working on ways to make the group more of a learning and collaborative experience for legal professionals who desire to learn more about legal blogging. And that’s for those of you new to blogs and legal blogging veterans.

  • Personally, I’m available to anyone who may has questions or concerns on blogging as a lawyer or law firm. Working on law blogs and blogging myself for almost 5 years, I may have some answers or even some past blog posts of assistance (over 4,000 blog posts at Real Lawyers Have Blogs).
  • We’ll have free monthly webinars covering various legal blogging issues. I’ll be conducting some webinars on my own and on others we’ll have guests. We’ll email you with an invite in advance. The first Webinar was last week and was attended by close to 100 folks. A recording and powerpoint of the ‘Intro to Law Blogs : What Works and What Doesn’t’ webinar is available here.

The webinars serve not only as an educational opportunity, but permit some collaboration as attendees have the opportunity to ask questions. This generates discussion with the host and guests leading to further questions from other attendees.

Our Legal Blogging Group is just in its infancy. Expect more in the way of features and collaboration tools.

Want to join? Go to this page and send in your request. Not to worry, you don’t nee to have a blog and there is no secret handshake to gain admission.

If you’re a lawyer, legal marketing professional, librarian, legal assistant, law firm administrator, law student, or professional serving the legal profession, you’ll get in. We have members from around the world and from all walks of life, including, but not limited to, managing partners from the largest law firms, in-house counsel, law professors, legal publishers, and aspiring lawyers in college.
