Legal Profession Blog Re-Named To ABA Journal's Top 100 Law Blogs

Posted by Alan Childress

Thank you to the ABA Journal for -- like last year (Jeff's funny post in 07) -- naming our blog to its 2008 Blawg100_2008_2 edition of Top 100 blawgs of interest.  We were one of just five Law Professor Blogs Network sites so named. For readers so inclined, here is the link to vote for LPB on the ABA website.  Voting ends Jan. 2. Their summary:

       Sometimes the legal ethics-oriented law profs at Legal Profession Blog slip off topic. But even in those instances, their commentary generally centers around the ethical business practices that apply to lawyers. The bread-and-butter posts here involve lawyer disĀ­cipline, though anything that involves lawyer conduct and the practice of law is fair game.

Not true, stories are always relevant (right). And BTW, I remoted across Driving Miss Daisy for about Img139 eight minutes the other day on some TV station and found it to be nearly unwatchable, something I had only vaguely remembered from seeing it originally.  Deference and knowing your place!  And Roll Tide tomorrow, as well. Also.

At the voting site, the ABA displays a tiny picture of one of Mike's posts plus repeats their review -- but omits the last sentence about bread-and-butter topics.  This clearly indicates the "slip off topic" remark is directed at Mike.  Learn to stay on topic Mike.  Oh, our family's first dog was named Mike, after our cousin Mike.  Some of our teachers at Tulane use a mike in the classroom now.  But I do not.

All best,

The reason is simply down to the amount of work that is put into preparing this blog. It has turned it into a very valuable resource. Thank you.

I don't think I was ever on-topic. It has been said of me that "the cheese has slipped off the cracker," however.

I suppose it could be said of me that the "butter slipped off the bread," although my doctor would be quick to claim "that's not likely."

Anyway, I know Dean Jim Chen would countenance going outside the "legal profession" proper, and that's good enough for me:

Congrats, I read you all every day.

It seemed to me that some editor insisted that the blog descriptions have some qualifier or left-handed compliment. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.
