“Each year, our choices become tougher,” said ABA Journal Editor and Publisher Allen Pusey. “Blogging has become such a staple of professional communication that keeping up with our own directory of more than 3,500 blogs by lawyers, judges, law professors or even law students is more formidable than it’s ever been.
“Some of them have become such permanent, even required, fixtures in our everyday reading that we’re introducing the ABA Journal Blawg 100 Hall of Fame to recognize those blogs and bloggers that have set the standards for this vast, vibrant network for legal news and commentary,” Pusey added.
The inaugural Blawg 100 Hall of Fame names 10 blogs the ABA Journal staff considers to be the list’s “cream of the crop.” The staff plans to induct new members of the Hall of Fame each year. Hall of Famers for 2012 are: Above the Law (abovethelaw.com); How Appealing (howappealing.law.com/index.html); Legal Profession Blog (lawprofessors.typepad.com/legal_profession); MyShingle (myshingle.com); New York Personal Injury Blog (newyorkpersonalinjuryattorneyblog.com); Patently-O (patentlyo.com); Robert Ambrogi’s Lawsites (lawsitesblog.com); SCOTUSblog (scotusblog.com); Simple Justice (blog.simplejustice.us); and Volokh Conspiracy (volokh.com).
