Jacqui G has included me in her top ten law blogs (I will not call them blawgs – ick). Thanks Jacqui. So I guess I’d better join in and pass the buck to someone else…It’s been quite good fun finding some of these.
Here then is my top ten (in no particular order). Some are family related, others more generally legal. And some are ‘legal’ only by virtue of the fact that their author is a lawyer…:
bloody relations – a blog from another family barrister who I pass in assorted county courts from time to time…lots of interesting and funny information on her blog about family law and news.
Clarendon Family Law Team blog – much as it irks me to publicise another set of barrister’s chambers I say ‘good on ’em’ for recognising the ‘POWER OF THE BLOG’ (star wars voice) as a marketing tool. Hadn’t seen this blog until trawling for my top ten today but its actually a really good resource which I will not hesitate to call upon in future. Thanks v much Clarendon.
Family Lore – topical, funny and useful family oriented stuff from John Bolch.
Divorce Solicitor – because lawyers are human beans too…
Ruthie’s Law – found this one today. Made me laugh.
Liadnan – a random assortment of mostly not-legal stuff from a rather charismatic sounding lawyer
GeekLawyer – good god. a lawyer who swears. I think this bloody top ten thing might be his bright idea…
Head of Legal – a legal blog with its beady eye firmly on the newspapers
FeministLawProfs – rather interesting blog, and a little different from the others in my list (but I gotta say – in answer to the post which considers the possibility that the phrase ‘what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander’ might be gendered – they’re all birds innit (excuse pun)? Or possibly the more appropriate response would be that in its application it is not gender specific even though (plainly) geese do come in different sexes. It is a phrase whose essential meaning is rooted in the idea of SAMENESS not DIFFERENCE…)
