Law Prof Blogger Census
Daniel Solove at PrawfsBlawg has compiled a law prof blogger census. According to Solove's research there are 103 law prof blogging (22 are members of the Law Professor Blogs Network!). Twenty are female and 83 are male.
Solove reports that the law "schools with the largest amount of bloggers include San Diego (7), Cincinnati (4), George Mason (4), Ohio State (4), UCLA (4), GW (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3)."
In commenting on this study, Orin Kerr observes
Blogging is a natural medium for law professors: most law professors are generalists, good writers, interested in the world around them, and have the free time to sit around and blog. The medium provides an easy way to bridge the gap between scholarly audiences and the interested public. Blogospheric triumphalism is all too common, but my guess is that blogging will prove to be an increasingly common part of law professor life.
Solove is soliciting help in completing his census. If you know of a law prof not listed, you can make a comment to his post.
