Jan 07, 2008 These are a few of my favorite blawgs
Through lists named “memes,” in later 2007 various blawgers listed their favorite blawgs, which amounted to tagging each listed blawger to post a list.
I have carefully crafted my blogroll to cover blogs that are of interest and (with a few exceptions) post regularly, except that I have listed prosecutors’ and judges’ blogs no matter how often they post and no matter how interesting are their posts, in order to understand them better. Below are among my favorite blawgs:
Abolish the Death Penalty — Presented by the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.
Innocence Project — Barry Scheck -— with whom I have spoken at several criminal defense lawyers’ conferences — will always have a special place in my heart. He is a powerhouse without a huge ego.
SCOTUS Blog — Includes Supreme Court junkies writing on Supreme Court news and analysis from the critical to the more peripheral.
Sentencing Law and Policy — Essential reading for criminal defense lawyers.
Jonathan Turley — Churning out several daily on-point blawg entries, usually about the day’s legal news. He joined my law school’s faculty too late, after I graduated.
Passion first and foremost drives the foregoing blogs to keep going strong, even with SCOTUS Blog, which is sponsored by a huge corporate law firm. Thanks to everyone who makes these blogs possible. Jon Katz
