Ten Things: Legal Blogs You Should Check Out (2016 edition)

As you have probably noticed, there are more blogs than there are lawyers… okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but I think you get the point.  There are, however, a lot of legal blogs out there.  Many are just marketing pitches for law firms and are not very good or helpful.  But, a healthy number transcend the boring, lazy, overly-dense, and “lawyer-speak” of the many.  These blogs are particularly useful to in-house lawyers, especially as a starting place for legal research (and this may not be the first place that comes to mind when you are thinking about doing some research).  Still, finding the “good ones” can be a challenge.

A year ago I posted my list of the Ten Best Legal Blogs of 2015, setting out a number of blogs that I read regularly and highly recommend.  This year, I thought I would do something little bit different.  While you should certainly check out all of the blogs on last year’s list (e.g., Presnell on Privileges is still awesome), I did not want to create a 2016 list that repeated a many of blogs from last year’s offering.  Instead, I thought I’d point out some additional blogs that may also worth your time – depending on what you’re interested in.

This (very short) edition of “Ten Things” will list some more of my favorite legal blogs and the topics they cover.  These are all worth you clicking on and checking out over the holiday break or the next several weeks.  If you find one or two you like, be sure to subscribe to them so you get the newest editions when they come out.  Here are my blog suggestions in no particular order of importance:
