Good legal blogs?

Postby auntjulia » Sat Dec 31, 2011 2:09 pm

I currently read Above the Law, the Becker-Posner blog (more of a policy blog) and Paul Campos' blog. I look at the TaxProf blog occasionally.

I'm looking for recommendations of other blogs written by lawyers, judges or law professors that have good information and insight on different types of legal employment, what's going on in the industry, etc.

If you have any suggestions, please post them.

Thanks!

Edit: If this is the wrong forum, I'm sorry. Feel free to move this thread.

This might be too specific to fit the bill, but if you're at all interested in the healthcare drama, ACA Litigation Blog is pretty comprehensive.

lol I read this as "Good legal bongs" which would probably be more fun.

I have no idea how this list is, but it's the ABA and there's a lot of blogs listed... maybe if you see some good ones (other than those listed above), you can highlight them here?

The amlawdaily and and amlaw litigation daily are nice complements to the blogs, great insight of "what's going on" on the corporate law side.

Yale law prof Jack Balkin has a good blog at balkin.blogspot.com; also features a bunch of other law professors.

Most of the good ones are listed, but I would put the NYT dealbook blog on the list as well. It's not strictly a legal blog, but it's what puts bread on a lot of lawyers' tables.

Edit: and add Main Justice (all things DOJ-related) to the list.

2d the dealbook suggestion, though its easier to receive it as a twice a day email than as an RSS feed. Along the same lines, WaPo's (Ezra Klein) wonkbook morning newsletter is great for a run down (left-leaning) of the day's political/policy news.

Does anyone know if there are any good legal podcasts? I'm looking for interesting stuff to listen to during drives, errands, etc. I already subscribe to the ABA's, Lawyer2Lawyer, Law School Interactive, Bitter Brief and Rocket Lawyer. Anything else?
