Today marks the fifth anniversary of this blog’s debut.
It’s been a wonderful ride. Waking up every Sunday morning (OK, most Sunday mornings), grabbing a cup of java, and writing 600 words about the latest in legal ethics might not be everyone’s idea of fun. But I’ve loved it.
Over the last half-decade our 230-some posts have been read about 75,000 times. We’ve twice won awards from the ABA Journal – in 2016 and 2018. The blog has been cited in law review articles, other blogs, news feeds like Law 360, and even in a law school casebook.
Best of all, this blog has allowed me and my co-editors to engage with lawyers from every sector of the legal community who are interested in legal ethics, and to be an ethics resource for companies big and small across the country – and around the world. We are always amazed that we have faithful readers in places like Sweden, China, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.
We have also paved the way for three more Thompson Hine blogs on the LexBlog platform: Trump and Trade, Source Code, and our newest, ERISA Litigation. You should check them out.
Thanks to all our readers, and here’s to many more years.
