Blawgs Affecting Legal World

In thirteen thoughfully written essays published in print and made available online, NeXus, a Journal of Opinion published by Chapman University School of Law, raises an interesting question.

This weekend, while Jeremy Blachman and the Anonymous Lawyer were spending their non-billable hours preparing Blawg Review #68, this editor's time was well-spent reading two of these articles written by previous hosts of Blawg Review, Denise Howell and Colin Samuels, who concludes:
The rise of legal blogging is not a matter of a few attorneys riding a new wave of communications technology, but instead marks the legal profession's welcome return to an ongoing community dialogue.
After reading the best of the past week's posts in Blawg Review #68, this editor is going back to check out the rest of those essays.

And I'm going to have a good look at the NeXus blog, too, which is a new one added to this blawgroll.
