Corresponding with Cornelius – a new series of blog posts


Not all of my online conversations take place here at Compliance Building. I try to make as many comments in other places as I do here. Twitter is a sporadic stream of thoughts, comments, and replies. I also try to leave as many comments on other blogs as I do posts here. I think you should join some of those other conversations. Here are some other blog posts that caught my eye and made me leave some commentary.

The Three Types of Collaboration by Jordan Furlong of Law 21

Jordan sets out a paradigm of three types of collaboration: Lawyer-to-lawyer, lawyer-to-client, and client-to-client. It is one of the few times I have disagreed with Jordan.

I have to credit David Hobbie with coming up with the phrase “Corresponding with Cornelius” which led to this blog post title and this new series of blog posts. (At least new for me.)
