Legal Blogs Can Provide a Wealth of Information for Expert Witnesses

I came across a nifty, comprehensive listing of various legal blogs, categorized in several different ways, so you can choose the listing method according to the criteria most helpful to you. For example, you can look at the blogs authored by judges or by law professors, those listed by firm name, or, my personal favorite, blogs sorted by legal specialty from education law to international law, from personal injury to tax law.

Compiled by law student Ian Best, this taxonomy of legal blogs began as part of an academic study of blogging for Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University. Best wanted to demonstrate the amazing resource material blogs can provide for legal related matters. Most of the blogs included are written by lawyers, law professors and law students. Some of these legal blogs could serve as useful sources of up-to-date information regarding case law in your area of expertise, the names of attorneys who handle cases in your field or upcoming issues you should be ready to address.

Thanks for the link and write-up. I wasn't aware of your blog until I received traffic from your site. I have since added you to my taxonomy in the categories Trial Practice (under the Specialties), and Advice for Lawyers.
