There are still things in the United States I envy. Certainly, one of these is the thriving legal blogosphere – they have so many legal blogs over there, they even created a neologism for them: blawgs.
Every year since 2007, the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal has assembled a list of their 100 favorite blawgs for the December issue.
The call has just gone out for this year’s nominations – so it is time to submit your amici letter in support of your favourite blog. The deadline is 11:59 p.m. CST July 30, 2017.
My recommendation would be that you check out Ted Folkman’s blog, Letters Blogatory, if you do not know Ted’s blog already. I am certain that once you have had a look, you will deem Letters Blogatory worthy of a nomination for the ABA 100 Blawgs. It is an excellent source, and the only one of its kind, on up-to-date information on all matters concerning judicial assistance.
Ted had provided comprehensive coverage of Water Splash, Inc. v. Menon, the new US Supreme Court decision on service by mail under the Hague Service Convention. He followed the Lago Agrio case to its bitter end in the United States, reports on new developments in The Hague, and kept up with the latest news in the world of international judicial assistance with his cases of the day.* And since the election, Ted has thrown in a fair share of political analysis to help us better understand what is going on in the United States.
Ted has made it into the ABA 100 before, and he deserves to be there in 2017 again.
*I do know how he manages to publish a case of the day consistently year after year, but as of this week, I will try my very best to publish a case of the week.
