No, this has nothing to do with the Primaries -- although that has certainly been an interesting and entertaining topic lately. Readers of the Court Technology and Trial Presentation Blawg are encouraged to nominate us in a blog competition currently found online at The Expert Institute.
According to the site, they are in the process of “creating the largest and most comprehensive ranking of legal blogs online today as chosen by thousands of voters ...Each blog will compete for rank, as well as exposure to our monthly readership of more than 200,000 legal professionals.”
Listed categories include Medical Malpractice / Personal Injury, Criminal, Technology, Commercial and Intellectual Property Law, Labor and Employment, Education, Niche and Specialty. We would greatly appreciate your vote in the Technology category. While there are cash prizes for the top 3, the real benefit for us would be that even more legal professionals come to discover the resource we have been working on diligently for many years.
Of course, another great source of legal blawgs is the ABA Journal, where we are listed in the following categories: Trials & Litigation | Law Practice Management | Evidence | Legal Technology | Consultant | Business of Law -- If you can’t find something of interest to read there, you’re probably not really interested in reading. There are many other categories to choose from as well.
A little history of our blawg:
Our first blog post was published in July of 2009. Since then, we have published nearly 200 articles focused on the intersection of law and technology. Before blogging, beginning back in the late 1990’s, we frequently wrote for several print publications, including Law Technology News (now LegalTech News), still another great resource for legal-geeks and others concerned about integrating technology and law. One recent Legal TechNews article (HM Electronics v. R.F. Technologies), tells the story of what can happen to attorneys who don’t bother keeping up with technology.
LinkedIn groups are also an excellent way to follow specific topics. While some are controlled and moderated better than others, many have some great info, along with unique opportunities to interact and connect with like-minded professionals. I would suggest you check out the Trial Technology group, if you find this blawg interesting.
We have previously published two lists of a few of our favorite LinkedIn groups for attorneys and legal professionals, which remain in the top two all-time most popular posts on this blawg:
The membership stats shown in the articles are a bit outdated, but the groups remain of great interest.
