Law Blogs in Other Countries

A reader (Anton) left a (kind) comment about how’s he enjoying what goes on here at Concurring Opinions (aw shucks, thanks!). At the same time, though, he wondered whether such law blogs were a uniquely American phenomenon. His concern – I’m paraphrasing a bit – was that in a smaller country, bloggers might be worried about some amount of professional backlash if they expressed strong political views. He also asked whether there were any law blogs – resembling this one – written by lawyers / academics in other countries. Not about international law – but about local matters. I am wondering whether some of our readers might have suggestions? If so, leave them in the comments, because I know that I’d love to check them out.

    Off the top of my head, I can think of 2 IP blogs that largely cover developments in the professor’s home country: and . I’m sure there’s more.

    Hi Miriam, glad to see your visit has been extended! I was discussing this very same question with a colleague from a British law school recently, and she was intrigued by the more-or-less mainstream nature of our legal academic blogs. So, I think we can say there’s not as much law prawf blogging (yet) in the UK, despite the fact that they have many law schools (140, I am thinking – law is an undergraduate degree in the UK).

    The one that comes readily to mind is TransAtlantic Assembly, a blog that focuses on European law and politics.
