Legal Blogger Goes Country!
Looks like the stock and glamor of legal bloggers is really going through the roof. Consider this trend: First, law professor and Instapundit Glenn Reynolds made it onto the national scene with his columns for MSNBC. MSNBC is a nice gig, of course, but nothing new; lots of attorneys have transitioned into news media. The next wave brought us somewhat sexier positions: Jeremy Blachman and Melissa Lafsky, a law student and junior associate respectively, who secured book deals by blogging about biglaw life from the inside. And U.S. Attorney David Lat, who parlayed his gossipy Web site on the judiciary, Underneath Their Robes, into a full-time gig at Wonkette.
Still, none of these quite compare to San Diego law professor Junichi Semitsu's summer job as the official in-house blogger for the Dixie Chicks' summer tour. Semitsu will travel with the group and has free reign to blog about anything he wants. If this doesn't prove to lawyers that, truly, blogging can take you anywhere, I don't know what does.
