WIRTW #239 (the “has it been a year already” edition)

I have been blessed that the ABA Journal has included me on its list of the top 100 legal blogs (its “Blawg 100”) for the past two year (2011; 2010). As in the past, it is soliciting input on which blawgs to include on its 2012 list. From the ABA Journal:

We’re working on our annual list of the 100 best legal blogs, and we’d like your advice on which blawgs you think we should include.

Use the form to tell us about a blawg—not your own—that you read regularly and think other lawyers should know about. Or if you don't have particular blawgs in mind but think blawgs from a certain practice areas should be represented in the Blawg 100, you can use this form to let us know which ones. If there is more than one blawg you want to support, feel free to send us additional amici through the form. We may include some of the best comments in our Blawg 100 coverage. But keep your remarks pithy—you have a 500-character limit.

There are a few rules to keep in mind if you are inclined to click through and nominate any blogs:

  • You can’t nominate your own blawg of any blawg on which you’ve contributed content.
  • Wives and husbands cannot nominate their spouses’ blawgs (sorry, honey).
  • Employees of law firms cannot nominate blawgs written by their co-workers.
  • PR professionals cannot nominate their clients’ blawgs.
  • Blawggers cannot enter into any kind of gentlemen’s agreement to nominate each other.

Submissions are being accepted until September 7.

Here’s the rest of what I read this week:
