Blawg Review

It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

Professors Blog Real Good

This weekend, while the rest of us kick back in celebration of orgainized labor, the law professors at Workplace Prof Blog will be toiling away in preparation of Blawg Review #73.

Next in our "back to school" series of academic hosts are the professors at the Case School of Law, who will be presenting Blawg Review #74 on the weblog of the Institute of Global Security Law and Policy on September 11th.

Blawg Review #75 will be hosted at Concurring Opinions, which was recognized as the "best new blawg" by the Goddess of Justice and Law in last year's Blawg Review Awards.

David Maister has made quite an impression on the legal blogosphere with his business blog, Passion, People and Principles. Maister is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on the management of professional service firms. He began his teaching career at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and then joined the Harvard Business School faculty, where he taught courses in managing service businesses from 1979 until 1985. For twenty-five years he has advised firms in a broad spectrum of professions, covering all strategic and managerial issues, building a global practice that finds him spending about 40% of his time in North America, 30% in western Europe, and 30% in the rest of the world. Before heading off to Copenhagen to speak at a conference, David Maister will host Blawg Review #76. That'll be our segue from academics to practising attorneys.

But law professors will be hosting Blawg Review again before long, as we've lined up special hosts to bookend the mid-term elections in the United States. Professor Bainbridge will present the pre-election Blawg Review and Professor Rick Hasen will host the post-election roundup of the blawgosphere at Election Law.

Gordon Smith was the first law professor to host Blawg Review, with back-to-back issues at Law & Entrepreneurship News and at the Conglomerate. James Maule hosted Blawg Review #53. And let's not forget Professor Kingsfield's Blawg Review #60.

If you know any other law professors who would be excellent hosts of Blawg Review, please send them a link to this post. Professors who are interested in hosting an upcoming issue of Blawg Review should email the Editor to schedule one of the available dates listed in the sidebar on the front page of this Blawg Review weblog, which serves as an organizational basecamp for the project.
