Employment law, civil litigation, white collar crime

Some new resources I ran across this week.

First, another of the Law Professor Network Blogs - Workplace Prof Blog. Lively, with news as well as case reporting but still academic (if less so than most of the Law Professor Blogs).

Second, is the Trial Lawyer Resource Center. The site's format differs from the usual blog but it calls itself a blog and it has an RSS feed. The site describes itself:

You've found the blog where a number of the USA's top trial attorneys join together with litigation experts to lend their expertise on topics that matter in your trial practice. Gain insight in case selection, work up, trial strategy, evidence, and post settlement issues. Contributors will regularly share their real life experiences and knowledge to help you represent injured consumers.
The Daily Caveat covers white collar crime and corporate fraud but is not written by an attorney.
About the Daily Caveat
The Daily Caveat is written by Michael Thomas, a recovering corporate investigator in the Washington, DC-area. Michael was a co-founder of Caveat Research, LLC., a business-oriented private investigative firm providing sophisticated corporate research and investigative services to corporate boards, law firms, consultancies and investment banks.
DocuTicker poses some interest and a problem for me. The site describes itself as "DocuTicker offers a hand-picked selection of resources, reports and publications from government agencies, NGOs, think tanks and other public interest organizations." The interest comes from the range of topics covered including small businesses. The problem lies in the more academic tendencies of the posts and applying them to practicalities of my practice.

I am very much intrigued by Settle It Now Negotiation Blog. Practical and lively written. This blog lead me to Trial Lawyer Resource Center, so I am very impressed.
