The Times’ Top Legal Bloggers

Stowe Family Law | 17 Mar 2011 0

The Times lists its Top Legal Bloggers today, and I am delighted for this blog to have been included. What an honour!

The roll call is accompanied by an interesting piece about the future of legal blogging. Journalist Pat Long points out that although fewer new blogs are being launched, in the face of competition from other social networks such as Twitter, the “notoriously verbose legal profession” is bucking the trend. Carl Gardner from Head of Legal is quoted in the feature explaining that as blogs have matured and proliferated, the quality has increased and readers have come to expect “a higher level of quality and higher production values”.

This blog is more than three years old now, and during that time its readership has continued to grow. Some of the blogs in The Times’ list are written by lawyers for lawyers; others, like mine, also aim to provide detailed advice and information for readers who do not have legal training. I suspect that this may be another reason why legal blogs are increasingly popular. Twitter certainly serves a purpose – but you try explaining the finer points of family law in 140 characters or less!
