Law Professor Blogs Network Traffic Up 87.5% in 2013

LPBN LogoThe Law Professor Blogs Network enjoyed a record-setting 2013, with traffic up 87.5% over 2012 as total network page views topped 18 million.  Eighteen of the network's blogs are among the 50 most popular blogs edited by law professors.  Four network blogs were named to the ABA Blawg 100 ("the 100 best Web sites by lawyers, for lawyers, as chosen by the editors of the ABA Journal"), and one network blog was named to the ABA Blawg 100 Hall of Fame.

I acquired 100% control of the network in May and launched a top-to-bottom re-design in July (details here).  Brian Leiter's Law School Reports and Law School Rankings joined the network in October.  The network launched nine new blogs in 2013:

With the support of our sponsor Wolters Kluwer Law & Business/Aspen Publishers, the network is seeking to expand in two ways.

First, I am actively recruiting law professors to launch additional new blogs in other areas of the law school curriculum not currently covered by the network, including Administrative Law, Bankruptcy, Human Rights, Intellectual Property, Law & Economics, National Security, Native American Law, Race and the Law, and Trial Advocacy.

Second, I am actively recruiting law professors to affiliate their existing blogs with the network, as have Brian Leiter's Law School Reports, Brian Leiter's Law School Rankings, and Doug Berman's Sentencing Law and Policy.

The network offers law professors the premier blogging platform and the opportunity to share in growing sponsorship and advertising revenues. For more information about these opportunities, see here.
