Sarah Randag of the ABA Journal is hosted Blawg Review #314 in an edition she calls LawLawpalooza! ABAJournal.com hosted this week’s Blawg Review in conjunction with the 2011 ABA Annual Meeting in Toronto.
Curiously, they were not actually blawging from Canada as they were in Chicago over the weekend noticing the train riders coming in and out of the Loop — many who were among the 250,000 people going to and from the Lollapalooza music festival.
As Lolla ticketholders must choose between bands playing simultaneously, the lawyers at the ABA conference, with some 1,400 legal programs, including business meetings for association entities, do the same and work their way around five or 10 venues for their own LawLawpalooza.
So, check out the LawLawpalooza Blawg Review and see what’s happening around the blawgosphere. We especially enjoyed the posting about the ABA Expo, where blogger Carolyn Elefant of My Shingle was with Social Media for Lawyers co-author Nicole Black, signing copies of their book:
Social Media for Lawyers: The Next Frontier, American Bar Association (June 16, 2010), described as “a cutting-edge guide that shows lawyers how to use a practical, goal-centric approach to social media. By enabling lawyers to identify the social media platforms and tools that fit their practice, lawyers can implement them easily, efficiently, and ethically. Written by two lawyers, this book is designed with both the novice and advanced user in mind.”
They wrap up the book noting that “Law firms and lawyers who turn a blind eye to technology do so to their own detriment, and their failure to acclimate to rapid technological change is going to catch up with them in 2010 and beyond.”
