This is a guest post from Kristen Sala, senior manager, electronic media.

Law surrounds us daily.  It affects all of us, from a politician running for office, to the head of a successful PR firm, to the author of an independent blog who works out of the comfort of her home.  The topic has even made its way into a few prior CisionBlog posts, including our piece outlining Twitter’s copyright infringement policy and our Q&A on content publishing and distribution.

In light of this ever-present topic, we ranked the top 50 independent law blogs in North America.  The list was created using Cision’s media database and blogs are ranked based on our Cision Influence Rating.  Reaching out to varied audiences, these blogs cover a range of law-related issues.  Some offer tips to future law professionals on how to get into law school, while others offer tips to seasoned attorneys on how to keep themselves organized or argue a case.  There are blogs that approach law from an outside perspective, offering unbiased updates on recent trials and cases; while others focus on one branch of law and might offer consumers an inside scoop on taxes or copyright. 

As I was putting this post together I could not help but think of Scott Baio’s character from Arrested Development.  You know Bob Loblaw, the Bluth Family lawyer who shamelessly plugs his blog every chance he gets.  Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog… try saying that 10 times in a row. Now, without further ado…
