Blawg Review

Inspired Blawg Review

Professor Glenn Reynolds gave this week's host Sheryl Sisk Schelin some link love from Instapundit.

This week's Blawg Review #121 at The Inspired Solo is, ironically, uninspired. That's not to say it's not an excellent roundup of some of the best legal bloggage of the past week; it is.

Let's face it, a lot of lawyers, law students and law professors are on holidays in August, or maybe we're all blogging less these days. So, this week, with fewer submissions and recommendations to work with, our host got back to basics with a theme-free Blawg Review. Some prefer it that way.

But, for those of us who enjoy an inspired theme now and again, there's more to look forward to in upcoming issues.

David Gulbransen, who put together Blawg Review #70, an inspired Back to School special, is hosting again next week for his third year in a row, so expect something special then.

Anita Campbell at Small Business Trends will host a Back to Business special on September 17th.

Mediators Diane Levin and Geoff Sharp will co-host a special for the week including Conflict Resolution Day.

And for something different, we've lined up Dr. Jillian Todd Weiss to host Blawg Review at the Transgender Workplace Diversity blog, a year after Jen Burke hosted her special Blawg Review #84 on Transgender Remembrance Day.

Next year, expect even more inspiration. Stephen Nipper will host Blawg Review at The Invent Blog on February 11th, which is coincidentally National Inventors Day in honor of the anniversary of the birth of the inventor Thomas Alva Edison who had over 1,000 patents. How inspired is that?

Kevin O'Keefe is hosting next St. Patrick's Day. "The glorious St. Patrick? Why he was the one who drove all the trolls out of Ireland," sure and begorrah!

Michael Fitzgibbon, a Canadian labour lawyer, will host on the National Day of Mourning observed in Canada on April 28th. It commemorates workers who have been killed, injured or suffered illness due to workplace related hazards and incidents.

The Mommy Blawg will host on International Midwives Day.

Whisteblower Law Blog is scheduled to host Blawg Review on May 12, 2008 to coincide with the second annual Whistelblower Week in Washington.

Moral Dilemma, an inspired blog by Australian lawyer, law blogger and author, Dr. Mirko Bagaric, will host on May 26, 2008, which is National Sorry Day, in remembrance of mistreatment of the Aboriginal people in Australia.

Dr Eoin O’Dell a Fellow and Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, Trinity College Dublin, has offered to host on his Irish law blog,, on June 16, 2008, Bloomsday. Bloomsday is a commemoration observed annually on June 16th in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of Irish writer James Joyce and relive the events in his novel Ulysses, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904. The day is a secular holiday in Ireland. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses, and June 16th was the date of Joyce's first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle, when they walked to the Dublin village of Ringsend.

We're full of inspiration for themes for Blawg Review, you see. Just ask, and we'll help you come up with a theme or special day to host your own issue of Blawg Review.

If you feel inspired, you might want to host on on Martin Luther King Jr. Day next year, although this year's special presentation of Blawg Review on MLK Day is a hard act to follow.

A healthcare law blogger might host on April 7th, World Health Day.

And we'd like to see someone special host on December 10th for Human Rights Day. Maybe someone who blogs on the ACLU law blog, or maybe you.

If you're an inspired lawyer, law student, or law professor, and you'd like to host a special issue of Blawg Review, just semd us an email and we'll help you find a theme that's just perfect for you and your blawg. All of the dates available to host Blawg Review are listed in the sidebar of the home page of this weblog, along with links to the Future Hosts of Blawg Review.

Trust me, you won't find a more inspired group of bloggers than right here hosting Blawg Review each week.
