By Alex Aldridge on

This week’s #RoundMyKitchenTable podcast guest, City University’s Emily Allbon (pictured), is one of the pioneers of legal blogging, having started the excellent Lawbore site way back in the dial-up internet days of 2002.

Since then, Allbon has seen many legal blogs fall by the wayside, and a fairly recent new wave of really good bloggers emerge – like David Allen Green, Adam Wagner (editor of the UK Human Rights Blog), Amanda Bancroft (Beneath the Wig) and Lucy Reed (Pink Tape), amongst others.

Lawbore, meanwhile, has gone from strength to strength to maintain its position as the online law student resource, despite competition from various other well-resourced law schools.

The secret to Allbon’s success? And her predictions for the future of legal blogging? It’s all on the podcast…
