Congratulations to our Law Professor Blogs Network bloggers recognized by the ABA Journal:
Blogs named to the 2015 ABA Blawg 100 ("the 100 best Web sites by lawyers, for lawyers, as chosen by the editors of the ABA Journal"):
- EvidenceProf Blog, edited by Colin Miller (South Carolina). ABA: "Every weekday, law professors post on the very latest rulings regarding the admissibility of evidence in criminal cases and what sorts of lines of questioning should be permitted at criminal trials. They also note differences between the federal rules of evidence and the rules of various states. Occasionally, they will comment on whether they think courts have reached the right outcomes in these evidence cases or note fishy behavior by prosecutors."
- Brian Leiter's Law School Reports, edited by Brian Leiter (Chicago). ABA: "This blog highlights academic job openings and covers salaries of professors, salaries of recent law school graduates, recent law review articles and other law school news. It can also be counted on to come up with its own rankings of law schools and law reviews."
Blog named to the ABA Blawg 100 Hall of Fame:
- Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog, edited by Gerry W. Beyer (Texas Tech). ABA: "A loyal audience devours this blog seven days a week—and some readers have reported that trusted Texas Tech law professor Gerry W. Beyer will respond to them when they reach out. Beyer stays on top of new regulations in Texas ad nationwide as well as news and insights from both mainstream media and scholarly journals that affect those with estate planning and elder law practices."
Two other Law Professor Blogs Network blogs were inducted in the ABA Blawg 100 Hall of Fame in previous years:
- Legal Profession Blog (2012 inductee), by Alan Childress (Tulane), Michael Frisch (Georgetown) & Jeff Lipshaw (Suffolk): "The posts here often have us wondering, 'What were they thinking?' If a lawyer strays from ethical boundaries, the professors who blog here are quick to pick up on the trail of any discipline with to-the-point, snark-free dispatches."
- TaxProf Blog (2013 inductee), edited by Paul Caron (Pepperdine): "Paul Caron, a professor at Pepperdine University School of Law, covers tax reform in the news and scholarship related to U.S. tax law, and he notes celebrity tax disasters. But we like TaxProf at least as much for Caron’s exhaustive coverage of news and debates covering legal education. He became the sole owner of the Law Professor Blogs Network and a makeover of that group of blogs soon followed."
