Blogging about the Law

Posted by on 31/12/2016 at 11:11 pm

… As 2016 comes to a close I post my first blog post on this blog this year. Yes… The last blog post on here (and that was a guest post) was posted just over a year ago on 27 December 2015. So why has it taken me a year to blog? Did I give […]

Lawyers and Social Media + Personal Branding for Law Students

Posted by on 16/10/2014 at 11:26 pm

… … I gave a talk today on Lawyers and Social Media to the students on the Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Glasgow School of Law. My talk emphasised the importance of personal branding for young lawyers which can and should start whilst still law students. I pointed out that lawyers had to tell the […]

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 […]

… 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 […]
