Join the Seattle Law Blogger Meetup!

STL to Host Seattle Law Blogger Meetup on Dec. 5 at Graham & Dunn

Seattle law bloggers unite! For one night, at least. On Dec. 5, STL will host a roundtable for Seattle-area law bloggers. Judging by the success of the Bay Area event (see organizer Eric Goldman’s description of last year’s get-together here), the first Seattle gathering should be productive and fun.

Here are the sorts of things I’m interested in discussing:

  • Why do you blog?
  • Has blogging affected your practice? Your life?
  • What benefits have you gained by blogging?
  • How do you generate new content?
  • Have you ever received a cease-and-desist letter?
  • Have you ever censored yourself?
  • What resources exist for learning about blog law?
  • How have other lawyers reacted to your blog? Your clients? Your law firm? Your judge?
  • How will law blogging change in the next few years?
  • Do you have any great tools or tips?

If you have ideas for other topics, let me know. For me, it’ll be great just putting faces together with some excellent local blogs.

The plan is to meet at Graham & Dunn (on Pier 70, near the Olympic Sculpture Park) at 6 pm, schmooze for a little while, get the discussion going, then wrap up around 8 pm. This is open to all law bloggers — including practitioners, academics, law students, and anyone else who’s got a law blog (including, if space permits, anyone who’s about to start one).

Please RSVP to mike@SeattleTrademarkLawyer.com so know I how many to expect. And, equally importantly, send me your ideas for making this event a success.

See you at the meetup!

Of course, I'll be there!

I'm particularly interested in your question about how it will change... I'm not necessarily predicting this, but I wonder if, as legal bloggers will become a little more comfortable participating, they will see it more as a conversation and less as simply a different kind of "publishing" mechanism.

Glad to hear you're coming, Michael. We couldn't do this properly without you. Are you the only law student blogging at SU? If not, can you please spread the word?

Missed this one Mike but keep us updated on the next meetup. My wife and I would like to come.
