There has been "an explosion of online blogs by, for and about lawyers", according to Jonathan D. Glater in his New York Times article of 10/7/05 titled Open Arguments, Endlessly. Many lawyers, law professors and law students are authoring their own blogs. Scott Turow, the author of One L and many legal novels, offers his insights into the reasons for this and also says that "One L' today would be a blog".
