Artificial Lawyer is very proud to announce that it has been chosen to be part of the ABA Journal’s prestigious Web 100 list of the best legal blogs, podcasts, Twitter accounts and web tools. It is one of only 35 blogs to make the list this year.
The full list of Web 100 members appears in the online version of the December issue of the magazine.
The ABA Journal is the highly respected publication of the American Bar Association, one of the world’s largest voluntary professional organisations, with over 400,000 members.
ABA Journal Editor and Publisher, Molly McDonough, said: ‘The web is a constantly evolving space, and we enjoy shining a light on new and useful blogs, tools and people for legal professionals to follow. We started this project as the Blawg 100 in 2007, but over the years have broadened the scope to include podcasts and social media.’
‘This year, we added a category to explore tools that have practical applications for your day-to-day life as a lawyer. We hope the Web 100 provides readers with entertainment, engagement and a way to keep abreast of the newest developments in the legal industry,’ she added.
