Keeping Up with Law Blogs

Law related blogs and websites provide a valuable advantage. Electronic advance sheets may be necessary to read the changing caselaw, but the commentary provided by lawyers can improve your assessment of developments in the law.

Once you find a website with pertinent information, you could try to remember to keep checking for updates. But that is an inefficient waste of your time.

If you want an efficient way to keep up with the information published by interesting blogs (like this one), then you will be happy to learn how simple it is to use RSS. The video below (not prepared by this office, but recommended) is under 4 minutes. It explains what you need to know.

If I may recommend: use Google’s Reader to read what you subscribe to. You should have a Google gmail account anyway, as a backup to your office email and for easy transfer and back-up of files. So, when you sign in to Google mail, you might as well look at Google Reader to keep up.

For this website, some like to subscribe to Trial Tactics, others like to get updates from the RSS feed. To try out the RSS feed, just look at the top right of any page on this site, and click on the “subscribe” word or the adjoining icon. On the page that comes up, click on the box to choose Google or Yahoo or Bloglines as your reader, and then click on “Subscribe Now”.
