World's Oldest Blawg Turns 10

WalterOlsonSept06 Two years ago, I made an attempt here to identify the first legal blogger ever. After examining the archives of some of the longest-running legal bloggers I knew of, I concluded it was Walter Olson, who launched his blog, Overlawyered, on July 1, 1999. No one ever came along to claim an earlier birth, so Overlawyered retains the title.

Today marks Overlawyered's 10th birthday.That is a full decade of chronicling the abuses and excesses of the litigation system, of commentary that is consistently cutting and wry. I may not always agree with Walter Olson, but I sure as heck always read him.
