TechnoLawyer's Endorsements for the ABA Journal Blawg 100

By Neil J. Squillante | Tuesday, December 7, 2010

TechnoEditorial 12-06-10

Although TechnoLawyer won the ABA Journal's Blawg 100 contest in the Legal Technology category in 2008 and 2009 (we received the second highest number of votes overall among the 100 nominated blogs in 2008 and the third highest in 2009) and continues to publish influential content that regularly goes viral, the ABA Journal mysteriously omitted us this year.

With no need to get out the vote on our own behalf, we endorse the following blogs based on publishing frequency, content quality, influence, and style:

Vote in the ABA Journal Blawg 100.
