What’s a blawg? A blawg is a legal blog. there are a few directories of blawgs including a directory from the ABA.
The first blawg everyone should be following is Law and the Multiverse. James Daily and Ryan Davidson look through the world of comics, sci fi, and other fiction to answer the legal issues presented.
