I haven’t blogged much on here recently, partly because of being busy at work but also because I have been setting up two other blogs and a podcast.
The first blog – ukblawgroundup – I’ve mentioned on here before. This is the name of the blog carnival for UK Lawyers which reviews the UK legal blogging scene. The next edition is published on the 31st March, with submissions due by 17th. Peninsulawyer will be hosting it.
The other new blog I am starting is one that focuses on the Legal Services Act 2007 and the whole debate over Tesco Law. I’ve lectured on this recently and I’ve due to start a series of lectures (to solicitors) for MBL Seminars the week after next. Much of my time over the last couple of weeks has been spent preparing the notes. Whilst doing that it occurred to me that it would be a good plan to start a blog specifically devoted to legal deregulation, rather than putting it up on this blog as I have been to date. I have created a blog called “There may be trouble ahead” and it will go live shortly. URL details will be posted here.
I plan to kick off with a post on the issue of who would actually want to buy a law firm and then a guest post from Mark Greenhouse of Resq on the application of “Lean” principles in law firms. I’ll be looking for guest bloggers to give their take on Tesco Law – please contact me if you would be interested in contributing. Other projects include a series of slidecasts (slideshare presentations but with added sound) on the basic aspects of the LSA, to give some background on the basics. I’m hoping people will contribute and that we can have, as Mrs Merton used to say on her show “a heated debate”.
When I’m not blogging on Tesco law I’m still going to be writing on employment issues here at Jobsworth.
Finally, I recorded a podcast with Brian Inkster of Inksters Solicitors Glasgow. That will be up very shortly – hopefully this weekend.
Have a good weekend.
