Our special host for Blawg Review #27 at Legal Blog Watch is the incomparable Lisa Stone, originator of BlogHer. A blogger and a journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, she also blogged the Democratic National Convention for the Los Angeles Times.
A Nieman Fellow at Harvard in 2001-2002, Lisa Stone has over 14 years experience in writing, editing, producing and creating content.
Established in 1938, the Nieman program is the oldest mid-career fellowship for journalism in the world. The fellowships are awarded to working journalists of particular accomplishment and promise for an academic year of study in any part of the University.As a blogger for American Lawyer Media's Law.com blog network, she now writes Legal Blog Watch a.k.a. Inside Opinions: Legal Blogs.
Lisa has recently been invited as the only female blogger, and the only American, to join a jury of internationally recongnized blog journalists for The Bobs, Deutsche Welle International's Weblog Awards 2005, "The Best of the Blogs". Who are they to say who's best?
She is plenty bright, and she's got as much judicial experience as Harriet Miers, so we're pleased to nominate Lisa to host Blawg Review #27. Seriously now, there's a special reason Lisa Stone is hosting our carnival of law bloggers next, but you'll have to read Legal Blog Watch on Monday to find out what's new.
