While they initially wanted to be able to share the same information conveyed in newsletters…
How do you measure the ROI on social media? Can you even measure it? At LexBlog we hear these questions often from attorneys who want to know how to measure the success and investment in blogging and other tools. At the monthly breakfast put on by the Social Media Breakfast group here in Seattle today, marketing consultant Katie Delahaye Paine gave a presentation on this very topic, titled No More Excuses: Yes We CAN Measure
The ABA TechShow, held annually in Chicago, is the biggest legal technology conference out there.

This week saw launches from a couple existing LexBlog clients, a couple Canadian firms (including a re-launch) and a couple attorneys who are new to the LexBlog Network.

Sometimes just one attorney at a firm is engaged and involved in blogging, and sometimes the whole gang gets involved in a firm’s blog. That’s the case for the Virginia Real Estate, Land Use and Construction Law Blog, where instead of just one blogger to profile, we have three dynamic attorney-bloggers from the Virginia firm Bean, Kinney & Korman. Timothy Hughes, Heidi Meinzer and Tad Lunger each serve as the “editor” for…

With no post-law school job offers, no qualms about his obsession with the Supreme Court and — most serendipitously — no morning classes, Georgetown law student Mike Sacks had the perfect formula for his blog. The third-year writes First One @ One First, chronicling his attempt to be the first one in line to hear all major arguments before the Supreme Court this term. That has meant rising at ungodly hours of the night…
