A Taxonomy of Legal Blogs

"I heart taxonomies," says Denise Howell at Between Lawyers. The inspiration for her romantic sentiment is A Taxonomy of Legal Blogs, a noble stab at collecting and categorizing all the stars in the galaxy known as the legal blogosphere. The taxonomy is the work product of Ian Best, a third-year student at Moritz College of Law, who explains on his blog 3L Epiphany why he did it:

"I believe that the blogosphere suffers from a lack of an efficient infrastructure. 3L Epiphany will exemplify a cohesive system for organizing legal blogs."

As ambitious as Best's taxonomy is, even more so may be his future goal:

"My hope is that ... 'blogging for credit' will one day be considered an essential component of a legal education."

Meanwhile, Best's effort stands as a well-organized guide to legal blogs, useful both to newcomers to blogging and old hands.
