The American Bar Association is running its third annual Blawg 100 contest. They winnowed a list of nominees down to 100 and divided them into 10 categories: News, Legal Theory, IMHO, Geo, Practice Specific, Business, Careers, Tech, Justice, and Lighter Fare.
I decided to throw my support behind those blogs that I read and enjoy among those 100. You’re only supposed to vote for 10, but I was only able to narrow down the list to my top 15.
