For Blawg Review #142, Susan Cartier Liebel has an idea that challenges followers of this project to submit or recommend law blog posts that contribute to an "open letter" theme.
Here's her proposition:
Some have been after me for a while to construct a "Letter to a New Lawyer" giving them advice, wisdom, perspective. That's a tall order because I don't presume to have any perspective but my own. So, here is the challenge. I will be writing that letter as a Blawg Review and am seeking submissions this week which discuss your experiences (not just from solos, either, even though I've been dubbed the solo-centric champion of solos!) This Blawg Review is for everyone in every aspect of practice. You can be a BigLaw lawyer, a law student, retired, solo, professor, judge, career counselor, jury consultant, public defender, legal aid, marketing guru, mediation consultant, etc.Anyone who wants to submit a blog post or recommend another's good one for inclusion in this Blawg Review should send in a link following these Submission Guidelines.
There are many gifted blawgers who have opinions about their experiences and would like to share them. Your posts can be about your area of law, great cases, marketing, ethics, law school, BigLaw, going solo, work/life balance, blogging, education, anything as long as it takes the form of wisdom and advice you would legitimately pass on to a new lawyer seeking your counsel.
