One of my favorite lawyer blogs for practical tips and techniques is the Illinois Trial Practice Weblog (RSS Feed). Despite its name, this blog is not jurisdictionally specific. Any trial lawyer from any state, new to the practice of law or more experienced, can learn something from reading the Illinois Trial Practice Weblog.
Evan Schaeffer posts several times a week on topics such as Legal Writing Tip: Begin First Drafts in the Middle, Electronic Discovery: "Metadata" Becomes a Sexy Word, and Presenting an Expert Economist at Trial.
