17 tips for law student blogs

I have been asked by law school professors, placement offices and students on best practices for blogging. I am reluctant to share “X Tips” on this or that for fear that my post will look as if I am I trying to garner SEO — and that the minute I publish the post I’l think of something else to add. Expect to see the number of tips change, No question law students and law schools need guidance on blogging though. Here’s  a few tips to get us started. Establish a goal you want to accompl...

Law schools need to introduce social learning

I’m headed back to the Midwest this week to speak to another law school class. I have to tell you, nothing gets me more jazzed than speaking to law students about the opportunities they have to use the net to learn, network and build a name. Little question that some law school students are using social media and blogging to build a name for themselves. I shared the stories of a few law grads a couple weeks ago. But how many law students are blogging and using social media for learning? How man...

Michigan State University College of Law Ranks Number One

We’re all familiar with Michigan State University’s athletic prowess. As a Notre Dame graduate, I’ve seen on TV any number of football losses at East Lansing. Basketball Coach Tom Izzo has kept the Spartans near the top nationally for what seems like twenty years. Michigan State’s Law School though, which I am sure has received national recognition in the past, has not been discussed historically with the likes of Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Michigan. No longer. The Spartans are getting known, ...

Veteran lawyer bloggers tell law students to get blogging

Should a law student blog now? Yes, yes & yes, writes veteran law blogger and successful niche practice solo lawyer, Carolyn Elefant. In the big picture, something law students may not appreciate today, prosperity and a sense of direction may be the best reasons to blog. A blog is your precedent; a picture of you as a law student, at a place in time where your profession lies in front of you and where you’re still excited and eager — maybe naive or at least, not yet jaded. Blogs capture the ins...

Ten keys for a successful law student blog

Our Law School Blog Network is coming alive with a good number of blogs by law professors and law students. Here’s ten points to mind for a more successful blog for law students yet to go live or not even started with their blog. Focus on a niche. Blogs are very much “if you build it, they will come,” so long as you focus on a niche. For example, tax law is way too broad. Tax law for income property owners in your state rocks. You’ll get noticed, you’ll have people cite you as a resource and y...

Can law school career services keep up with passion of law students?

One of the most rewarding things I have the honor of doing is visiting law schools. I get to go into large law school classes or open sessions and tap into the existing passion these young people have. It’s incredible. When I talk about the Internet providing each and every student the ability to make their dreams come alive, eyes open. You can see the fire. When I share the story of Pat Ellis going from an average student at Michigan State Law School to Honigman in Detroit to inhouse counsel a...
