This site has received a mention on an American blawg (the term used for a legal blog) called What About Clients. WAC is building a list of blawgs worldwide and includes blogs from all over the world including, of course, South Africa. As Dan Hull, the blogger behind WAC, puts it:
And we know you are out there. A South African commercial litigator, Paul Jacobson, just let us know about his blog. If you publish or know about other active blawgs originating in or about South Africa, please let us know so we can add it to the growing list on your bottom left of non-U.S. blawgs. Thanks to some excellent blawgs here and abroad and a few of our betters like Blawg Review there’s increasing interest in the WAC? effort to expand the digital conversation with the rest of the world by creating a solid catalogue of non-U.S. legal weblogs. In the next few days, we–well, a hard working guy in Pennsylvania named Tom who started out as a corporate tax lawyer but now is headed for more fun if contentious projects–will add here links of recently-submitted non-U.S. blawgs. We’d do it sooner but at WAC? we don’t just talk about the mysteries of high-end global clients who trade everywhere. We have to work for them, too.
Thanks again for the mention Dan. South African legal bloggers have much to add to the worldwide conversation already taking place. It is just taking a little longer for local lawyers to join the conversation.
