For The ABA Journal Blawg 100 Amici Nominations, Might We Recommend?

As we previously noted, the deadline to nominate a legal blog to the ABA Journal‘s list is rapidly approaching:  it is August 9, 2013.

That’s THIS Friday, people.

The rules prohibit us from nominating ourselves, which is probably a good thing, as that spares us the embarrassment of doing so. We probably couldn’t resist the urge to do so if the rules permitted it, so thank goodness we can avoid the issue altogether.

As we’ve previously noted, there are many great legal blogs out there, and we hope that even if we are not your favorite that you will still participate in this process and nominate your favorite blog.  Some of our favorite legal blogs are:

  • Popehat. Remind us to never, ever run afoul of Popehat’s Ken White, a criminal defense attorney and fierce defender of online free speech. He dedicates his time and his writing to skewering those who attempt to censor free speech on the Internet.
  • The Drug and Device Law blog. The team behind this site, including Jim Beck, Stephen McConnell, Michelle Hart Yeary, John Sullivan, Eric Alexander, and Steven Boranian, clearly know their stuff.  In fact, their posts offer the type of exhaustive detail and extensive analysis that you typically don’t encounter on legal blogs. A fine resource, if you find yourself in this practice area. (Plus, McConnell knows his pop culture, so there’s that.).
  • Torts Blog. Run by friend of the blog and law professor Alberto Bernabe, this is a site you need on your blogroll.
  • Overlawyered. We’ve noted before that we’ve been reading Walter Olson’s Overlawyered blog for more than a decade. To be honest, we don’t know how Walter does it. He’s one of the most prolific writers and tweeters in the online legal world. A must read.
  • The Law and The Multiverse blog. A blog analyzing legal issues in the comic book universe? Why didn’t we think of that? Run by James Daily and Ryan Davidson, this blog is not to be missed.
  • Litigation & Trial. Every once and again, we like to leave our comfort zone and read a Plaintiff’s lawyer’s blog.  Well, there is none better than this one operated by Max Kennerly. We disagree with him, lots, in fact, but it’s always good to read opposing views.

You can complete the very brief nomination form here.  It will only take you a few moments.
