Don’t miss the Thursday, September 12 (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m, including lunch) SBA program, “Posts of Distinction: Starting, Sustaining, and Showcasing a Blog on Legal/Policy Issues,” featuring Professor Walter Effross, WCL Technology Training Manager Aryan Kushan, and five leading law bloggers, including keynote speaker Tom Goldstein ’95 of SCOTUSblog.
The program will provide a wide range of practical advice on enhancing your professional profile, employment opportunities, network, and client-base through blogging.

In advance of the program, you might be interested in Professor Effross’s list, “Topics for Law-Blogging: 125+ Suggestions,” and his material on “Disclosures, Disclaimers, and Designs of Ethical and Effective Law Blogs and Law Firm Web Sites,” which reviews relevant ABA and state bar professional responsibility rules and advisory ethics opinions; identifies a range of issues and statutes that could entangle site operators; provides numerous examples of terms and conditions that some sites have adopted to address these issues; and explores additional practices and procedures to safeguard sites.
Those documents, and related materials on distinguishing yourself to—and finding— potential employers (particularly those “off the beaten path”), are available through links towards the bottom of the page, http://www.effross.com
