ABA lists 2016’s top blawgs

Technology for Lawyers

Published: February 24, 2017

The ABA tracks about 4,000 legal blogs, or “blawgs,” and puts out a list of the best of them every year.

Here are a few of those. I can’t provide links, so you’ll have to google them.

First, an interesting note. Only two of these are actually posted within a law firm’s website. The rest are independent of a specific firm. If ya wanna blawg, you may want to note that fact.

First, blawgs relevant to law students (hi UA law!):
