Future Law: IT and Legal Practice Predictions for 2014

Published on 05/01/2014 By Brian Inkster

… 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)

Published on 05/01/2013 By Brian Inkster

… 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 […]

Travels through the Blawgosphere: A New Series Materialises

Published on 02/05/2012 By Brian Inkster

… There have been some interesting blog posts in the blawgosphere over the past week about the practice of law. I have tweeted links to some of these. But I thought it might be nice to do an occasional review of such posts at The Time Blawg which is, after all, here to look at […]

Flawging lawyers come out of their Chambers

Published on 04/01/2012 By Brian Inkster

… 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: […]

The Time Blawg – One Year On

Published on 02/01/2012 By Brian Inkster

… One year ago yesterday, on 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. I blogged then:- I look forward to posting on The Time Blawg in 2011 and beyond, inviting guest bloggers, receiving comments and encouraging debate at a time when the legal profession is going through many changes. I was not entirely sure where […]

Blawging with M’Learned Friends

Published on 20/11/2011 By Brian Inkster

… 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

Published on 18/10/2011 By Brian Inkster

… 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?

Published on 31/07/2011 By Brian Inkster

… 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 […]

The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room

Published on 04/06/2011 By Brian Inkster

… 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?

Published on 14/05/2011 By Brian Inkster

… 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 […]
