If you want a taste of what it’s like to practice in China or the types of inquiries that veteran practitioners there field each day, then China Law Blog is a must-read. Dan Harris in Seattle and Steve Dickinson in Qingdao could hit delete or ignore the left-field and sometimes ethically questionable requests they often get. Instead, they turn inquiries and issues they come across into teachable moments, sharing their experiences and observations as they help businesses navigate Chinese law.
Eric Turkewitz’s blog remains a great source for news and commentary from a plaintiffs-side tort lawyer. He may not be blogging as often as in years past, but when he does, it’s worth reading. Despite the name, it’s not all personal injury law; he talks about topics as diverse as politics, long-distance running, legal outsourcing and online extortion.
Reporters at Texas Lawyer offer snappy perspectives on developing stories, news briefs and happenings around the Texas bar (including who’s performing at Mark Lanier’s holiday party each year).
It’s “Boston Legal meets Miami Vice,” one reader tells us. And posts often keep a sharp local focus. But this anonymous blawgger uses enough humor to keep anyone interested and enough hyperlinks to help you keep pace. It helps if you happen to share the author’s dislike of social conservatism and his love for Bo Derek.
