Blawg Review

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

Law Blog the Vote

It's election season in the United States, and lawyers are blogging in the thick of it; running as candidates, directing campaigns, blogging the vote, or writing on non-partisan law blogs about legal issues, lawyers and law professors are right on top of it. In two special issues this year, Blawg Review has full coverage of these mid-term elections in two special issues.

The best coverage of the elections on law blogs in the week running up to the election is wrapped up in Blawg Review #82 on the day before the election by attorney Edward Still, whose Votelaw blog has been online since July 2002 at the intersection of politics and law, redistricting, campaign finance, the right to vote, election law and administration, and politicians in trouble.

Following the elections, law blogs will be buzzing with analyses of the results, with all manner of political second-guessing and legal wrangling over the outcomes, no matter who wins what.

Rick Hasen will host our post-election coverage in Blawg Review #83 on his well-regarded Election Law blog. Richard L. Hasen is the William H. Hannon Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola Law School, and the author of The Supreme Court and Election Law and countless other law journal articles linked in the sidebar of his law blog. He's one of the brightest stars in the entire blogosphere, and the go-to expert on the niceties of election law.

These special issues of Blawg Review will include coverage of the elections not only on law blogs, per se, but also on many popular political blogs that are written by law professors, practicing lawyers, and reformed lawyers of all political persuasions, including Hugh Hewitt, Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, John Hinderaker at Power Line Blog, Markos Moulitsas at DailyKos, the lawyer who shall remain nameless who blogs at Patterico's Pontifications, and many others.
