Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 2.0)

census.jpgThis post was originally posted on PrawfsBlawg on June 16, 2005.

UPDATED! On Monday, June 13, I posted the beta version of our attempt to take a census of current law professors who are blogging about legal issues and/or the life of law professors. Kaimi Wenger, Ethan Leib, and Dan Markel of PrawfsBlawg as well as Orin Kerr at VC all assisted me in this endeavor. Many readers posted comments and emailed with bloggers we missed, and we are very grateful for the assistance. When I decided to undertake this project, I thought that there would be around 30 or so law professor bloggers. Had I known the number would be over 100, the task would have struck me as too daunting to begin!

A few statistics

· There are quite a lot of law professor bloggers – 130 in all.

· The schools with the largest amount of bloggers include San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

· Of the bloggers, 28 are female and 102 are male.

This is version 2.0 of the census, which incorporates the assistance of our readers. The statistics have been updated.

There are a few blogs by law professors that I haven’t added to the census, as these are blogs solely about personal hobbies or experiences without connections to the law or the life of law professors. I discussed my decision not to include these blogs here. After posting the beta version of the census, I learned from Ann Althouse that there are three other blogs I didn’t list from Wisconsin law professors. I located two of them, both of which had posts that they preferred not to be included in the census. I will respect their wishes. Professor Stephen Bainbridge has a blog about wine, but I am not listing it because it has no legal themes at all. But it’s a neat blog nonetheless! Anyway, there is no strong litmus test for inclusion, just at a minimum some posts about issues relating to law, academics, politics, or the life of law professors, law students, or lawyers.

We hope that this census will prove useful for discussing who is blogging, the “blogospherics” (demographics) of the bloggers, and the law schools that have heavy blogging populations. We note that there are many very interesting blawgs by lawyers and law students, but we have restricted this list to law professors. Additionally, blogs without activity over the past month were not included.

We might update this census from time to time, so please email me about your blog if you were left out of this list or if you know of others we overlooked. And, of course, please email me if you start a new blog.

    Thanks!
