What is the criteria for inclusion in the ABA Blawg 100?
There is no specific criteria that a blogger can meet to be guaranteed a spot on the Blawg 100....I think we meet the criteria, don't you? Last year, Law School Cafe made the list as "a hub for all those who are dissatisfied with the current state of legal ed and have ideas on how to change it." This blog, however, missed the cut last year, presumably because it was not operating for the entire year. Given that this blog has more posts, comments, and street cred with the target audience than Law School Cafe, I would think this blog is well worthy of inclusion.
• We're primarily interested in blogs in which the author is recognizable as someone working in a legal field or studying law in the vast majority of his or her posts.
• The blog should offer insights into the practice of law and be of interest to legal professionals or law students.
• The majority of the blog’s content should be unique to the blog and not cross-posted or cut and pasted from other publications.
• We are not interested in blogs that more or less exist to promote the author’s products and services.
But do we want inclusion in such an establishment list? I think that's best left up to the discerning readership.
However, if you do happen to submit an "amicus brief" on behalf of this blog, please feel free to copy-post your "brief" as a comment to this post.
