We posted here earlier on our favorite legal writing blogs, sharing with you a quick list drawn up by David Sorkin of The John Marshall Law School. Although the blog addresses we gave were all good, the website didn't allow you to click on the links and visiti those sites. We've fixed that (I hope!) and we're now reposting the first list of some of our favorite blogs. Click here to read a follow up post from Coleen Barger with other links to blogs of interest for legal writing professors. And we know that in in this blogified world there are certainly other blogs to visit, so please add your favorites by leaving a comment to this message.
