  • An excellent initiative, David. I think that the US is still some way ahead of the UK for legal blogging, but such round-ups should hopefully encourage the further development of UK legal blogging - there is a lot of legal skill, knowledge and experience still to be harnessed in terms of blogging in the UK.

    Another welcome feature to this is that the blog posts aren't to be judged on any social media/page view metrics. I do think that a lot of potential legal bloggers in the UK are put off by the fact that they won't have a large network to which to share their posts. I think that as long as they share their posts (or get them into a shareable state) e.g. by tweeting links with hashtag #law #legal etc, that should be enough to get them into a visible form so that legal publishers like The Lawyer can pick up on them and give them greater exposure.

    All the best,
    Gavin

  • A great idea and I look forward to reading the weekly round-up. I agree with Gavin that UK legal blogging is just taking off, i also know from running a site that has many legal bloggers on it that those that stick with it, don't get discouraged by lack of feedback and share content with friends, colleagues, clients etc get the rewards long term. Feedback (or lack of) doesn't mean you're not being read.regards

  • My experience of reading legal blogs is rather mixed. Where the blogs supply a service which isn't supplied by a professional publishing house or commercial provider, I think it's generally a good thing. However, where amateur bloggers, writing in their spare time and providing their content for free, crowd out the professional offerings, I am rather less pro-blog.
    I have read several accounts of cases that I have personally worked on where a blogger has misunderstood key aspects of the case. On one occasion, I've then seen the erroneous blog case report used by other sources to give a false account of what happened in the case. In each case, I don't imagine any particularly adverse consequences flowed from the mistaken case reports, but quality control among amateur bloggers is generally pretty inconsistent.

  • This is really a great idea. As far as I am concerned people in the UK need a professional law - related blog where they will be able to get a legal advice or help when needed or just learn some useful information about law, government, rules, etc. Congrats

  • I'm honestly so grateful for my lawyer. This company has done so much to show how determined they are to win. I just wanted to share my story, thanks!

  • I need a lawyer on a no win no fee, for a direct discriminiation employment tribunal case. Hearin is at the end of September, I have done everything so far but, the impact on my life especially mentally has become too much for me to deal with to the point of suicide. I hope to get a lawyer to handle the case for me. Just sending messages with the hope that someone will take it. Please if you are reading this and a lawyer, please help me.
