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 […]

Posted by on 28/10/2012 at 11:23 pm

… Charon QC is about to embark (this coming Thursday 1st November 2012) on a law tour of the UK in a red Jaguar. This tour will cover the far reaches of the UK (including, with my encouragement and Inksters‘ sponsorship, Shetland), take him about a year and as he says will involve:- “Podcasts, voxpops […]

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

Posted by on 04/06/2011 at 11:23 pm

… 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 […]
