I have been very impressed with all the new columns here on Slaw.ca. Fantastic work, everyone! Hopefully others have also stopped by on a daily basis to check out the column each day in addition to the daily blog posts.
For readers looking for more, here are five other law-related blogs — by bloggers not already featured as columnists or contributors on Slaw — that I consider "must-read":
- Michael Geist's Blog – Michael Geist not only tracks intellectual property issues in Canada, but also he influences them. This blog is essential reading for those of us interested in copyright, digital media and other related issues in Canada.
- 3 Geeks and a Law Blog – Greg Lambert, Lisa Salazar and Toby Brown don't shy away from controversial opinion. I find Greg Lambert especially hones in on the latest issues in legal research, and find he consistently adds to the discussion. Lately they have been bringing in guest bloggers as well to boost the content. Well worth a look.
- CultureLibre.ca – One of the leading Francophone law bloggers in Canada, Olivier Charbonneau was my fellow speaker at the Legal IT conference in Montreal in April. I was impressed with his depth of thought with regard to legal research and technology. He posts to his blog regularly, often a few times each day, on a range of topics that would be of interest to Slaw readers.
- Above and Beyond KM – Mary Abraham writes about law, knowledge management, and human observation. Mary writes the blog we all wish we could write–she posts frequent, thoughtful posts assimilating all that she is learning in her daily work. She is a smart, creative and strategic thinker.
- Real Lawyers Have Blogs – Kevin O'Keefe and his crew at LexBlog not only do regular round-ups of their networks of blogs, but also include regular interviews with law bloggers, cover conferences, track changes to social media of interest to lawyers, and include opinion pieces. This is one of the first I ever read back when I first discovered blogs, and it has remained on my favourites list.
It was very difficult to narrow down my favourites to just these few. What should I add to the list? What are your must-read law blogs?
