Best legal blogs of 2018

Great legal blogs go deeper into practice niches than the mainstream legal press and share well-written personal insights. Here we’re highlighting 10 blogs that are new to our Web 100 list, 20 making a repeat appearance and five joining the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame.

Ad Law Access

NEW: For attorneys looking to stay abreast of trends in consumer protection, Ad Law Access provides analysis of issues from the labeling of gummy vitamins to whether leaving empty space in packages of chips and candy is misleading. “A nice source—from Kelley Drye & Warren—for developments in advertising law, including cases decided by the advertising industry self-regulatory body,” says Harvard Law School professor and blogger Rebecca Tushn

The Appeal

NEW: This blog launched in 2017 as In Justice Today, and it was rebranded this year. The Appeal and its two companion podcasts produce original reporting that examines cases of prosecutorial misconduct, overcharging and abuses of power in the criminal justice system. A particular focus is the toll mass incarceration is taking on the nation.

Appellate Advocacy

NEW: University of Arizona legal writing professor Tessa Dysart and a band of academic contributors blog about how to tackle drafting appellate briefs; the latest and greatest reference resources; and things as fundamental as the paragraph as a unit of persuasion. The blog has “good summaries of appellate advocacy issues,” says Mark Walsh, a freelance journalist who covers the U.S. Supreme Court for the ABA Journal and other publications.

Artificial Lawyer

Consultant Richard Tromans covers developments related to artificial intelligence in law. In August at his blog, he launched the AL 100 Legal Tech Directory to provide information to law firm IT professionals and others about the top legal tech companies and applications.

Asbestos Case Tracker

At this blog, lawyers from Goldberg Segalla do one thing and do it well: They cover the latest asbestos-related rulings, often on the day that they are issued.

Best Practices for Legal Education

HALL OF FAME: At this blog, law professors discuss what skills and qualities—beyond knowing the law—the future lawyers in their classrooms really need and the nitty-gritty of how to teach them. Recent posts discuss suggestions for bar exam reform, approaches to take with Generation Z law students who were raised on the internet, and what law students remember about professors decades later.

Big Law Business

This site focuses on news coming out of the nation’s largest corporate law departments and the law firms they hire. Posts cover significant job moves by lawyers in these circles; law firm expansions, mergers and bankruptcies; and which powerhouse lawyers are getting hired for high-profile cases.

Business Blog

NEW: The Federal Trade Commission “doesn’t hide the ball when it comes to business guidance,” Tushnet says. “This blog provides updates on FTC cases against various abuses and points to relevant guidance.”
