The 50 Best Twitter Accounts to Follow for Lawyers and Litigators

 

best twitter tweets for lawyers litigators litigation supportby Ken Lopez
Founder & CEO
A2L Consulting

Some people make a habit of denigrating Twitter, saying that its well-known 140-character limit makes it useless for anything substantive. There are several responses.

First, it’s possible to link to anything on the Web within a tweet (just use one of the common URL-shortening utilities), so lots more information can be conveyed. Second, a lot of people read more on Twitter than they write. They use it as a sort of personal news feed, scrolling down for a few minutes at a time during the work day to see what’s new. If you pick the right accounts to follow, this works very well.

It’s true, though, that A2L Consulting receives far more traffic on its website from LinkedIn than from Twitter. I recently commented on this reality for the Wall Street Journal.


So my advice to litigators is to pick a small number, say between 30 and 100, high-quality Twitter accounts to follow. Here are 50 that I recommend, but there are many more good ones. I have tried to provide a balance among news sources, trial tactics, general legal news and other interesting accounts.

Nice list. All attorneys must do more to improve their targeted use of video and audio evidence in court. Both when gathering evidence (such as locating surveillance) and when arguing their evidence clearly to a jury, attorneys are often far behind the technology and presentation curb. Check out our blog.

Here is a good Twitter list of lawyers and legal marketers: https://twitter.com/lapinlawoffices/lawyers-who-like-twitter 
Most everyone on the list blog and post almost daily

Great list -- thanks for sharing! But I'm disappointed not the see @ceb_ca listed. CEB tweets squibs w/links to all CA, 9th Cir, and US Sup Ct cases as they come down each day. Great (free!) way for attorneys to keep up with new legal developments.

Thank you for including my Twitter feed (@roncoleman), much less placing it first among individual attorneys. It was, of course, the right thing to do -- but not everyone does the right thing, now, do they?

Thank you for putting this list together! I hope to see @IlyaIussa on your next list! 
 
@IlyaIussa is currently my Professional Responsibility professor. She is doing something very cool this term; she is engaging her students (and followers) in various legal ethics topics as we cover them through the semester via Twitter. For Professional Responsibility/Legal Ethics topics, stories, lessons, or to see what our class is up to, please search hashtag #PRLawClass Additionally, all are welcome to share legal ethics stories, info, articles, etc. with us via this hashtag. I hope that many of you will contribute to our discussion, we (law students) would love to hear what you have to say. Follow @IlyaIussa as she reshapes our legal education!

No holding back here! The American Legal Studies Student covers topics relating to legal and social subjects. It also will explore my journey and experiences throughout college, in addition to law school in the future.
