The ABA (a law group known primarily for protecting corporate interests – or at least leaning heavily in the direction of doing their bidding) is working on their list of the 100 best legal blogs (www.marlerblog.com made it last year). They are looking for some advice on which blawgs you think they should include.
The form on its website can be filled out to tell them about a blawg—not your own—that you read regularly and think other lawyers (or humans) should know about. If there is more than one blawg you want to support, feel free to send them more amici through the form. They will be including some of the best comments in the Blawg 100 coverage. But keep your remarks pithy—you have a 500-character limit.
Some additional tips:
• They are not interested in “occasional” blawgs—blawgs you name should be updated at least weekly.
• Editors make the final decisions about what’s included in the Blawg 100; this isn’t a scenario in which the blawgs that receive the most amici are the ones that make the list.
Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than Friday, Oct. 1.
If you are having trouble with this form, you can email your submission to email@example.com.
