I wish to extend to those of you who have utilized this blog as a resource to go to the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100 Amici web page. You will see that the ABA is working on its annual list of 100 best legal blogs. If you think this blog qualifies, please fill out the form found there.
As many of you know, the California Appellate Lawyer Blog is a commentary on recent California appellate opinions that have an impact on the practice and study of law. As the principal author, I give the perspective of one who served 21 years on the state appellate bench. The advice drawn from selected current cases includes how to enhance ones chances on appeal, and the pitfalls to watch out for in appellate practice. Updates on trends in substantive law are also given to assist practitioners and law students.
A reading of the body of work contained in the blog makes it clear of the intent to be informative rather than promotional. I hope the injection of humor and originality distinguishes the content from what would find in a simple recitation of recent case developments.
Thank you for reading this blog. I am always interested in feedback, even if critical. And if there any suggestions of different types of cases you would like to see me write about, please let me know.
