Berkman Center for Internet & Society - Bloggership: How Blogs are Transforming Legal Scholarship Conference
This brief essay is a contribution to a symposium on How Blogs Are Transforming Legal Scholarship. It considers whether blogs have an important role in furthering serious legal scholarship, as well as how blogs can help legal academics contribute to public debates on law and politics. It suggests that the blogging format is not well-suited to advance scholarship, but that it offers promising possibilities for reaching a broader audience interested in law and public affairs.
