A smattering of interesting posts from the blawgosphere and beyond
- “Who Washed My Briefs?” from 3 Geeks and a Law Blog. A story to help legal professionals understand and cope with the changes and challenges facing the profession today. Clever and instructive. You’ll enjoy it, and you'll learn a thing or two.
- “Lawyer's word of mouth generated reputation most powerful Internet marketing” from Kevin O’Keefe’s Real Lawyers have blogs. One of the best posts I’ve read on why lawyers should have blogs (including my own). If you’re a lawyer considering a blog, read this to convince yourself to take the plunge. If you already have a blog, read this to remind yourself why you’re doing it. Everybody else? Read it too.
- “The Disappearing Associate” from Jordan Furlong at Law21.ca. You’ll appreciate Furlong’s perspective on the turmoil in the legal profession (read: layoffs, salary freezes, etc.). The title of the post provides a hint to what he sees as one of the most profound changes we’re in for.
- “Law Firms Can Now Register In

- “Social Media Perspective: Be a Lawyer” from JD Scoop. Lawyers, stop tweeting with other lawyers about social media. Stop writing posts about how lawyers should use LinkedIn. Stop spending your time analyzing new networking tools. Start communicating with clients and potential clients. Now.
