In late December, Dennis Kennedy announced the 11th Edition of his popular Blawggie awards, which tout his choices of top legal blogs in a variety of categories. Dennis Kennedy is a well-known lawyer (VP, Senior Counsel at MasterCard), author, blogger, speaker and podcaster who is considered among the most influential authority on the application of technology in the practice of law. If you are looking for new legal blogs to follow as an inhouse-counsel, head over to his site to check out the winners. InhouseBlog was honored to have been selected as the winner of the “Marty Schwimmer” Best Practice-Specific Blawg (named after Marty’s popular Trademark Blog).
“The Blawggies, which honor the best law-related blogs as determined from my personal and highly-opinionated perspective, were first unleashed on an unsuspecting blogosphere in December 2004 and are an annual tradition here at DennisKennedy.Blog. This historic eleventh edition of the awards makes them the longest running annual awards list for law-related blogs selected by a lawyer named Dennis Kennedy living in St. Louis, Missouri. What was originally just a crazy idea has turned into a bit of an institution in the world of law-related blogging, illustrating my original premise: ‘Hey, I have a blog and there’s nothing stopping me from making up my own awards.'”
