Top 50 Law Blogs

This list includes the top North American law blogs ranked by unique visitors per month. Using Cision’s media database, we compiled the list of blogs and their specialties based on Cision’s proprietary research. The UVPM figures are provided by Compete.com.

In order to gauge readership as accurately as possible, this list does not include blogs that are hosted on a parent website, as those readership numbers may be based on readership of the website as a whole, and not the blog specifically.
