Three More Seattle Law Blogs

In February, STL wrote about “Other Seattle Law Blogs” in an effort to survey who else is writing about the law in Seattle. And, I started collecting links to those blogs in STL’s navigation bar (scroll down to the bottom on the right). Here are three more blogs written by Seattle lawyers. If the subject matter is of interest, they’re all worth a read.

First is Trial Ad Notes by Mary Whisner, a reference librarian (and lawyer) at the University of Washington School of Law’s Gallagher Law Library. Trial Ad Notes “presents news items and resources relating to trial advocacy, with a focus on Washington State.” Ms. Whisner began Trial Ad Notes in January 2005 as a resource for students taking UWSL’s trial advocacy course. However, it has become valuable to anyone interested in trial practice. Representative posts include “Forensic Sciences - Cautions and Recommendations,” “Summary Judgment and Gender,” and “Science Daily: Culture Is Key to Interpreting Facial Emotions.” As a reference librarian, Ms. Whisner is extremely well read and does a great job of bringing the best of what she finds to her readers’ attention. I personally owe her a debt of gratitude for her article, “A Blog’s LIfe,” which chronicles her experience launching her blog. It helped get STL started.

Next is the Maritime Injury Law Blog by Beard Stacey Trueb & Jacobsen, LLP. As its title suggests, this blog is published by plaintiffs’ Jones Act attorneys focused on the many risks Northwest fishermen face on the high seas. It is filled with summaries of news articles with harrowing titles like “Excursion Vessel and River Barge Collide,” “Broken Mast Kills Man,” and “Fisherman Rescued from Sinking Vessel.” And those are just the last three posts! My guess is these attorneys have no shortage of work.

The last blog is Employment Advisory, published by Rod Stephens of the Stephens Law Firm in the Seattle suburb of Kent. Mr. Stephens represents both employers and employees, and his blog reflects this even-handed focus. Recent posts discuss new Ninth Circuit case law interpreting the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act and how employers should investigate employment claims. Mr. Stephens began publishing in November 2006.

I’ve added these blogs to STL’s navigation bar. If you’re aware of any other Seattle-based law blogs, please let me know!
