The moment has come. For the last twelve months, we have basked in the glory as the Top Law Professor and Legal Theory Blog. Now, the ABA has started the Third Annual Competition. The good news is that we once again made the top 100 blogs. However, the ABA has mixed things up a bit with new categories. We have been moved to the Opinion category (IMHO- in my humble opinion slot). The ABA editors, however, have put us up against one of the oldest and most popular legal sites, Althouse. To vote, click here.
Here is the description of the site:
Jonathan Turley is a law professor at George Washington University known for his work as counsel in cases involving military and national security issues. But Turley uses his blog as a way to lighten and liven things up. Under the banner of res ipsa loquitur, his posts focus on the oddities of the legal system within the criminal justice and tort arena.
Another site on the list is The Legal Satyricon, which is also a large and respected blog. The Legal Satyricon is notably threatening to off some kittens unless it wins the top spot.
Althouse was one of the first legal blogs and is consistently ranked by AVVO in the top three most visited legal sites. (We are ranked 9th).
The editors appear to have intentionally pitted top AVVO sites against each other this year with two a category. However, we are up against one of the top three and best recognized sites. It is, therefore, the ultimate Dave and Goliath moment. The Cinderella Man moment. The Crossing of the Delaware moment. The Hail Mary moment. Yes, it is your moment. Think of the children, the unborn, the undead. Think of your pets, your country. Think of me for God’s sake.
Here is an inspiring scene to send you off:
