In case you didn’t notice, you’ve got until the end of the business day to vote in the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100. Kudos to the the job the ABA Journal does ever year in shining a light on the insight offered by attorneys and other professionals on these publications.
As is clear, this is no easy process identifying—from the constantly growing throng of publications—which ones clearly stand out above the rest. Still, the team over at the ABA Journal does an excellent job every year, blending mainstays from the legal blogging community with up-and-comers who have made an impact.
For those who don’t know nominees are selected in one of thirteen categories, and many of these blogs make the radar because the Journal staff has found them useful for reasons like tipping them off to potential stories or containing original content, opinion, or analysis.
Every year the list is full of folks who are doing the legal profession proud with their passion for blogging. There’s no rigid guidelines, which is great because no two blogs look alike. Refusing to hold them all to one standard is one of the many ways ABA’s commitment to celebrating and encouraging the diversity and excellence around the legal blogosphere is one of the many efforts that keeps the continued growth in legal blogging going.
If you haven’t voted already, please make sure you go here and vote before the end of the day. You can’t go wrong with the excellent publications represented on the 2014 list, though I’m a tad biased, seeing as how this year LexBlog has twelve entries across the Blawg 100’s categories. You can read Q&A’s with some of the network’s Blawg 100 nominees over at LXBN. Here’s the full list of those who made it from the LexBlog Network:
- Litigation & Trial from Max Kennerly
- CFPB Monitor from Ballard Spahr
- All About Advertising Law from Venable
- The Velvet Hammer from Karen Koehler
- The D&O Diary from Kevin LaCroix
- FMLA Insights from Jeff Nowak at Franczek Radelet
- Employment Discrimination Report from Richard Cohen at Fox Rothschild
- Employment and Labor Insider from Robin Shea at Constangy
- California Peculiarities Employment Law Blog from Seyfarth Shaw
- DuetsBlog, from Winthrop & Weinstein
- Trademarkology from Stites & Harbison
- Electronic Discovery Law from K&L Gates
But as they say, no matter who you vote for just make sure you vote! Congrats to all the blogs that made the list this year, and a major thanks to the ABA Journal folks who put this all together every year.
