Note from the Associate Editor, Melissa Lin
Legal blogging is a worldwide community spanning states, time zones, countries, and continents. Need proof? Look no further than today’s post.
LexBlog had the pleasure of launching yet another blog from the Legal Hackers Community, this time for its Seoul-based chapter. Do not miss the opportunity to read this growing community’s insights on law and technology–they show no signs of slowing down.
Newest members to our network include Australian perspectives from Eaglegate and Thai perspectives from Antares Group. Eaglegate deepens readers’ understanding of known intellectual property and trademark issues by analyzing case outcomes in other countries and then speculating how those same cases would result in Australia. Antares Group gives same sex couples, marketers, business owners, home owners, and others useful guides to understanding their rights in Thailand.
Two US-based legal bloggers also joined our network this week: Colin S. Levy, sole in-house counsel for Salary.com–who is on the front lines of legal innovation and highlights legal technology and innovation thought leaders on his blog–and Mark Alexander, a litigator who aggressively pursues justice for his clients and exhibits his incredible wealth of knowledge on not one, but two blogs.
It is heartening to see evidence that the legal blogging community is strengthening worldwide. Please join us in welcoming our newest members and catch up on all the newest blogs in recent weeks here
