Law School Faculty Create, Write for Top 100 Legal Blogs Chosen by the ABA Journal

November 30, 2010

Editors of the ABA Journal today announced they have selected The Faculty Lounge, Feminist Law Professors, The Situationist and SCOTUSblog among the top 100 best law blogs by lawyers, for lawyers.

Readers are invited to vote on their favorites in each of the 4th Annual Blawg 100’s 12 categories. The Faculty Lounge, Feminist Law Professors and The Situationist are in the category, "Law Prof Plus," which covers blogs in the legal academy.

This is the second consecutive year the publication’s editors named The Faculty Lounge as a top legal blog. Launched and authored by Professor Daniel M. Filler, the senior associate dean of academic and faculty affairs, the blog features observations about law, culture and academia.

"The authors know their stuff, but posts are devoid of legalspeak and instead are inviting and conversational," the ABA Journal said. "Grab a chair, sit back and enjoy the banter about legal academic and the musings of the lounge’s 10 primary contributors and their guests."

Filler also contributes to another blog that made the Top 100 list: Brian Leiter's Law School Reports.

Professor David S. Cohen has contributed to Feminist Law Professors, while Professor Adam Benforado is a frequent contributor to The Situationist.

SCOTUSblog, appearing in the "Court Watch" category, features the Plain English column written by Associate Professor Lisa T. McElroy. SCOTUSblog received the 2010 Silver Gavel Award from the ABA, which specifically praised McElroy's column. To vote for SCOTUSblog, visit
