Mmm. Good Blawg.

These folks know something. And they're telling. (As you'll see too, blawgy things seem to be particularly happening in Minnesota for some reason. But then, the Star of the North has been at the vanguard of such things as pop-up toasters, so maybe this is no surprise at all.)


  • Ray Cox is a State Representative for Minnesota, and has a fantastic weblog about his work, life and the issues confronting the voters he represents.


  • Matt Conigliaro is an appellate lawyer with Carlton Fields in St. Petersburg, FL, and his blog is about Florida law and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
  • The authoress of frolic and detour is "an attorney/writer/wonk/critic" in Minneapolis, MN, who maintains a rich and fascinating site. [Via Jack Bogdanski]
  • I've really been enjoying C.E. Petit's blog, Scrivenor's Error. (I've also been enjoying the way arcane legal jargon morphs so well into catchy titles for weblogs.) C.E. represents authors (big 'uns), and writes about copyright law from their perspective. He's a fresh voice who gets sarcasm and irony, and ain't afraid to use 'em.
  • Jeanne Pi's Texas Elder Law Blawg is " a web portal to federal, state and local web information, resources and services related to Texas Elder Law."
  • Mark Smith practices in Lincoln, NB, and writes the Incorporation Blog about legal and tax matters for small business owners. [Via]
  • George M. Wallace is an attorney in Pasadena, CA, and he writes of things personal, cultural, and political at A Fool in the Forest.
  • Travis A. Wise lives in Campbell, CA, and is a corporate tax attorney in the International Corporate Services practice of KPMG in Mountain View. If you're taking the California bar exam next week, it's not too late to pay a visit to his California Bar Exam Primer. [Via]

Learning The Craft

  • Ms Anastasia Beaverhousen, aka the Lonestar Expat, is "leaving the old country for law school in the mid-west. . .do they have electricity there yet?" I couldn't say, but I can say with some assurance it's going to be fun to find out. [Via Howard Bashman]
  • I certainly hope James at Hilsy Blog is having a hoppy weekend. [Via Jack Bogdanski]
  • Joe Gratz is a law student who lives in Minneapolis, MN, and writes about all kinds of interesting stuff, like music sharing and ownership, law school lecture hall "backchanneling," and practicing law in the corporate arena: "[A] good deal of litigation seems to be two corporations fighting over one pile of cash. I see no reason not to help them. One is reminded of a rather cynical T-shirt slogan I once saw, which read, 'Once one understands that all of society is merely an elaborate mechanism for the movement of money from other people to lawyers, many matters which were once obscure become clear.'" [Via]
  • Le-Gal is a "50 something mother, wife, grandmother, law student, certified webmaster, decorative artist, who is beginning a whole new life." She also pointed me to the Larval Lawyer, who's taking the Virginia bar next week and along with TCC is one of Le-Gal's faves.
  • The writer in residence at Like a Blind Man attends law school at Georgetown. [Via]
  • Shannon is gearing up for law school at Queen's University, Canada. [Via]
  • The weblogger at Unfashionable Observations is at Stanford and writes great movie reviews, among other things. [Via]
  • Alice W. has been expanding her (and our) horizons at Drink Me in addition to her original page for awhile now. "according to my site statistics, drink me is the site that everyone bookmarks, but nobody will link to, or even admit to reading (besides the few faithful, you know who you are)." Let's remedy that: "I'm Denise Howell and I read Drink Me!"

Giving It A Rest

  • Ms. Morality is home by choice following the birth of her first child, but it sounds like her law firm sadly did not go out of its way to make that choice a difficult one. Do not miss her Realities of Being Pregnant in a Large Law Firm. ("Upon my return I was given a few short-term assignments (2-3 hours) and otherwise left to surf the internet and attend CLEs.  I researched discrimination laws.") [Via]

Blawgers At Large


Managing The Chaos

  • The paralegal weblogger at Groklaw is doing a bang-up job covering the SCO case. [Via Frank Field] Great writing about the music industry and P2P issues too.


Hey, I have a favor to ask. If you stop by here occasionally and are a blawgrollee, let me know if it's time to update where you sit/stand/fall in the massive monster. Often I put folks under Blawgers At Large if they're not yet in law school, or if they don't make it clear on their site just what the heck they're up to professionally. It's getting to be time when some on that list will start school, some in school have moved on, etc. I'll need to go through and try to figure that out soon, but it will be greatly appreciated if you are inclined to help speed the process.
