Beautiful. Thanks for this; only a blogger knows how long it took you to gather and insert all those links! The effort is much appreciated.

Ron Coleman

Kind of a lame article, though it is going to get a lot of play.

The Blog World "77 Most Influential" blawgs? Puh-lease.

Susan Cartier Liebel

Niki, great job! And you of anyone should know the energy involved in blogging, as Anne said.

Women are blogging everywhere. And as you and Scott Greenfield both pointed have to know where to look.


Nice work, but you forgot the Legal Tease over at Sweet Hot Justice -- she's a lady blogger with a strong --and different, refreshing, brutally honest-- voice:

We need more like her. Keep up the good work!

Elisa Camahort Page

Great post, with great resources!


And let us not forget the nontraditional lawyers among us!!

I have a joint degree in law and social work, passed the bar and the LISW exam, maintained both licenses through 2004 and now am a freelance writer and political commentator who frequently invokes my legal training (well, I try...) and I've been blogging since July 2005, often about law - education, municipal, mental health, constitutional and other areas.

Thanks for this wonderful list - argh - don't you hate when people get lazy!?

Connie Crosby

I am honoured to be included in the list, Nicole. Just to clarify, I am not a lawyer but a law librarian.

I agree women generally are challenged to have a presence in the "blogosphere". I find few librarians, for example, will leave comments on my blog despite many telling me they read along. They seem a lot more comfortable on Facebook where it seems removed from public eyes.

I want to add to your list one of my favourite law bloggers, and indeed an attorney: Betsy McKenzie over at the group blog Out of the Jungle




Nice response to the article whose author could well have taken some advice from women blawgers about doing good research.

I've never found myself actually looking for female blawgers, it was just never an issue.
Interesting comment about the non-traditional lawyers. I've come across female bloggers who are non-practicing lawyers too and they have quite a bit to say.

Thanks for including me in your list.

As an active female business blogger and marketing to women expert, I heartily agree that men tend to overlook women bloggers, overall, not just in the legal arena.

Women dominate the blogosphere - recent studies show our many voices, and your powerful law-blog provides another strong voice giving everyone (men, too) a place to get the right content, or...a place to ask the right question. Thanks for posting this. Just outstanding!
