Local Law Blogs

Author: 

Whether they are used for marketing, commentary, or just an outlet for their thoughts, many attorneys are blogging.  Some of the posts give amazing snapshots into the daily life as a legal practitioner, like this one on filing an appellate brief by Attorney Josh Michtom on Ryan McKeen’s excellent Connecticut Law Blog.  Ryan writes a lot of informative posts on starting and running a solo practice.

Closer to the Law School campus, Attorney Sarah Poriss ’02 writes on her consumer law practice.

Another Hartford-based Attorney, Daniel Schwartz of Shipman & Goodwin LLP blogs at the Connecticut Employment Law Blog.

Finally, Meghan Freed, Chair of the Connecticut Bar Association LGBT section, authors a blog “Connecticut LGBT Law Project.”

This is really just a taste of some of the local legal blogs (blawgs).  They are a great place to get a sense of different practice areas, or to better understand the day-to-day life of a lawyer, or to help prepare for an interview.
