Reed Smith’s structured finance group brings us Structured Finance in Brief, providing updates and analysis on current structured finance issues. They’re discussing such recent topics as noteholder meetings, Commodity Futures Trading Commission Rules, the “Basel III liquidity buffer,” (whatever that means), and loan level data, among others.
Karel Frielink is a lawyer with the firm of Spigt Dutch, which is located in Curacao. His blog, Karel’s Legal Blog, provides information on legal affairs in Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, & St. Maarten. He’s discussing cross-border converion and merger, good corporate governance, and taking control of a Curacao company through a foreign court decision, among other topics.
For those of you interested in media law check out Media Law Bytes & Pieces, featuring comment on the law of media, content and entertainment from big firm BakerHostetler. They’re discussing how to object to new generic top level domain names (gTLDs), Google search and free speech, artists sued for copyright infringement, and whether yoga sequences are copyrightable.
The Labor & Employment Report styles itself “your one-stop blog to learn about the latest in labor and employment law issues,” tracking the NLRB, state and federal court employment law decisions, and actions from relevant governmental agencies. Recent posts have covered topics including IRS health care regulations, the decline of labor union membership, and rules on witness statements, among others. It’s published by the Management’s Workplace lawyers of Shawe Rosenthal, a Baltimore firm.
It seems like the blogging lawyers at Fox Rothschild are coming out with new blogs all the time. This one isn’t new, but it’s new to me – the Delaware Court of Chancery Practice Blog covers corporate and commercial practice in, well, the Delaware Court of Chancery. Most of the latest posts discuss recent opinions of the court, but you’ll also find posts on derivative actions, entity formation, fiduciary duties, mergers and acquisisions, shareholder disputes, and more.
I’m learning just how many bankruptcy blogs are out there – there are a lot! And they are all of varying degrees of quality and substance. So I’m choosing to feature those bankruptcy law blogs that provide useful information, which is mostly provided to consumers and not other lawyers. The Florida Bankruptcy and Foreclosure Defense Blog fits this criteria; you’ll find recent posts on the “short sale,” the tax consequences of foreclosure, and how to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, among other topics. It’s published by Jordan Bublick, a lawyer in West Palm Beach, Florida.
A blog from big firm EpsteinBeckerGreen today – this one is called TechHealth Perspectives, and it covers strategy, analysis, and commentary on current and new health technologies. You’ll find recent posts on the corporate practice of medicine, The Telehealth Promotion Act, remote patient monitoring tools, and much more.
Another day, another self-titled blog. Today we have Allison Leotta, who is a novelist and former federal sex crimes prosecutor. Most of her posts are critiques of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” where she breaks down each episode and discusses it from the perspective of a sex crimes prosecutor. I know I appreciate law-related shows a lot more when they get stuff right, and it’s interesting to see someone’s take on what SVU is getting right and wrong when it comes to investigating and prosecuting these kinds of crimes.
Jamison Koehler is a criminal defense lawyer representing clients in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. At Koehler Law he’s discussing a number of topics, related to criminal law and other topics. Lately he has been talking about clients in military uniform, the corpus delicti rule, cross-examining the analyst in a drug prosecution, and whether the Washington Redskins should change their name.
I’m back! I took a couple of weekends off to write seminar papers and get my latest book off to the printers, but now I’m back to blogging on a more regular basis. We’ll start the week off with a very local blog – the Berks County Law Update. For those of you who don’t know, Berks County is located in Pennsylvania, with Reading being the main city in the county. The blog covers recent legal developments and civic issues in the community, and features posts on most of the major legal areas – bankruptcy, criminal law, elections, family law, insurance, land use planning, litigation, municipal law, tax matters, and more. It’s brought to you by the folks at uber-blogging firm Fox Rothschild.
