Berkman Center for Internet & Society - Bloggership: How Blogs are Transforming Legal Scholarship Conference Paper

Abstract:     
Although our conclusion may be refined after hearing discussion of this paper at the panel, Bloggership: How Blogs are Transforming Legal Scholarship, our actions as bloggers seem to suggest to ourselves and others that we believe that the benefits of pretenured blogging outweigh the costs in our individual situations. Other would-be bloggers will have to do their own analysis. Unfortunately, this analysis must be done with an unflinching look at one's own ability to self-monitor, self-discipline, and manage one's own time. Also, blogging candidates should determine whether blogging offers benefits that one's own institution cannot offer. Pragmatic professors will also consider whether the choice of blogging form can decrease the risks or increase the benefits. For the majority of pretenured law professors, blogging may be a great way to become a part of the dialogue in your given area. And isn't that why you became a law professor in the first place?
