Each year, the editors of the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal selects the 100 best blogs by and for lawyers. This year, they selected Legal Planet as one of them, out of 3,500 eligible blogs. Now, blog readers get to vote for their favorites, and we’d love to have your vote.
The journal editors categorize the blogs and ask blog readers to vote for their favorites in each of 12 categories. (Legal Planet has earned a coveted place in the category “Niche.”) Legal Planet appears to be the only blog among the Blawg 100 with a focus on environmental law or policy. Although other blogs in this tightly-defined category, such as Inside the Law School Scam and Equine Law Blog, provide serious competition for us, I’m confident that our readers will see us as the natural choice. (Surely there are some disgruntled law school graduates and equine lawyers among our readers, but I believe in our product so much that I’m not afraid to direct you to the competition!)
And I’m pretty sure foreign citizenship doesn’t disqualify potential voters, so all our loyal Canadian readers are welcome too!
