The 5th Annual ABA Journal Blawg 100

On our 5th birthday, you’ll see some familiar faces at the party: bloggers who’ve been on our list in years past.

But 2011 also brought along a lot of newcomers, and we’re delighted that so many RSVP’d our invitation to nominate their favorites. We received more than 1,300 Blawg Amici this year, and that made for a hard time narrowing the field to 100 law blogs in 12 categories.

As usual, we couldn’t help mixing things up a bit. In print, you’ll find the blogs in alphabetical order, color-coded by category. And as always, you can vote for your favorites online through Dec. 30 at

After you vote, you’re also welcome to browse our Blawg Directory, now featuring some 3,500 law blogs in dozens of categories and author types. And only a handful of blogs aren’t on Twitter these days, so follow this year’s picks on our Twitter List, as they post at 140 characters a clip.

But most of all, put your hands together for this year’s ABA Journal Blawg 100.
