Looking for the best blogs for in-house counsel? The venerable and sagacious Sterling Miller has released his list for 2021 and all in-house counsel should give it a close read. As Sterling points out, there are a huge number of resources available online to assist in-house counsel in finding information, networking, locating jobs and becoming a better lawyer. And a hat tip to Sterling for naming InhouseBlog® and GoInhouse® (our in-house counsel job board) to his Hall of Fame! If you’re not following Sterling Miller’s posts, you are missing out. He finds the latest and greatest sites and gives his thoughts on many subjects facing in-house counsel in their daily lives. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of his latest book – Showing the Value of the Legal Department: More Than Just a Cost Center – a great New Year’s gift for your colleagues as well. We hope Dennis Kennedy will start up his Blawggie Awards again in 2022 as well as the ABA Journal with their Web 100. Stay tuned as we may put together our own awards later this year!
“Well, here we are at the end of another year. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season. As usual, I like to take a few minutes every December to reflect back on the year and take stock of where we are with the “Ten Things” blog. It’s been a busy year for me, but I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have published my fifth book, Showing the Value of the Legal Department: More Than Just a Cost Center, I have been a guest on several podcasts (thanks!), I have put on a large number of presentations (live and via webinar), and – of course, I keep cranking out the blog. Somehow, we’ve already started “Ten Things” year number eight! As my mom often asks, “How the hell did that happen?” And I am excited for 2022, with plenty of things to write about for at least one more year. That said, I always love getting (and writing about) suggestions from you, so feel free to send them my way.”
