Future Law: IT and Legal Practice Predictions for 2014

Posted by on 05/01/2014 at 9:44 am

… A couple of days ago I looked back to what happened in 2013. Today I will look forward to what might happen in 2014. I first made legal IT predictions in 2011 on this blog. I will for 2014 follow the same format and topics (with perhaps some extra ones thrown in at the end). […]

The Time Blawg – Two Years On (Part 2: Blawging)

Posted by on 05/01/2013 at 12:59 pm

… On 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. One year ago I looked back at the first year of The Time Blawg – One Year On. Two days ago I looked back at what went on during the second year of The Time Blawg with specific reference to Social Media and give my thoughts […]

What Blawgers can learn from Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson

Posted by on 18/02/2012 at 9:47 pm

… In my first post of the year I made reference to blogging by Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as depicted on the BBC Television series. For ease of reference I will repeat what I blogged in that post:- “… on Sherlock – A Scandal in Belgravia (BBC One) it was revealed that Sherlock Holmes […]

Flawging lawyers come out of their Chambers

Posted by on 04/01/2012 at 6:59 pm

… The other day, in my roundup of 2011 on The Time Blawg, I suggested that perhaps 2011 would be remembered for the great flawging debate. I went on to blog:- I was brave enough to put my head above the parapet and suggest there might be some business advantage to be gained by blogging: […]

Blawging with M’Learned Friends

Posted by on 20/11/2011 at 10:23 pm

… In my post on Blawgers and the Inquisition I suggested that lawyers should perhaps utilise their skills in drafting written pleadings when preparing a blog post and ensure that there is little for other blawgers to attack. Otherwise they should be prepared for criticism and will have no one to blame but themselves. But […]

Blawgers and the Inquisition

Posted by on 18/10/2011 at 8:39 am

… Emotions appear to have been running high on Twitter and the Blawgosphere following publication of my last post. I managed to avoid becoming too embroiled in the Twitter exchanges over it as I was offline for most of the week holidaying in Malta. Whilst I was in Malta I visited The Inquisitor’s Palace in […]

I Blawg. You Flawg. Period?

Posted by on 31/07/2011 at 6:21 pm

… Is Blawging for business purposes black and white? That appears to be the view of many commentators on my post on The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room. There are blawgers and there are flawgers. That is there are the ‘serious’ law bloggers who do not dream of blogging for business purposes and then there […]

I thought the Blawgosphere was a friendly place :-(

Posted by on 18/07/2011 at 4:57 pm

… I was surprised and saddened by the way comments on my last post (The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room) degenerated into unwarranted personal attacks by Blawgers against other Blawgers… I thought the Blawgosphere was a friendly place As Lucy Reed tweeted:- Those commentators clearly had not taken the advice of Siobhain Butterworth at #LawBlogs […]

The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room

… I had the pleasure of attending the second #lawblogs event in London on 19th May. The event has, not surprisingly, already been covered in blog posts by other attendees. The ones I have picked up on (there may be others) are:- Michael Scutt: The Future of Legal Blogging Dylan White: A tree in the […]

Do Clients search for a Lawyer?

Posted by on 14/05/2011 at 11:44 pm

… This afternoon I had an interesting exchange on Twitter with Jon Busby of Legal 2.0 regarding how important blogs and websites are to lawyers. Jon considers that they may not be that important in finding new clients. Jon recently blogged about the possibility of his butcher, Charlie, writing a blog:- As a consumer I […]
