New blawg offers creative solutions to practical problems

Here’s a blog that focuses on how not to think like a lawyer. The brainchild of New Orleans lawyer A.J. Levy, Out-of-the-Box Lawyering focuses on creativity — on unusual solutions lawyers have found to problems they face in their practices. It’s what Levy, citing Edward de Bono, calls “lateral thinking.” Read, for example, how an attorney turned his client’s drug and alcohol addictions into an advantage at trial. This is a great idea for a blog. I look forward to reading the next installment.
