Shouldn’t it be ‘Among Lawyers’?

Five legal bloggers known for their insights into legal technology have launched a group blog devoted to discussions of that very topic, which they call Between Lawyers. As contributor Denise Howell explains of the authors in an introductory note:

“They are all bloggers with a track record of being able to explain complex legal issues in ways that others can understand. They find their backchannel conversations about technology, the law, their profession, and society pretty interesting, and they hope that by having these discussions in public — and inviting your participation — everyone concerned can learn a thing or two more than they otherwise would.”

In addition to Denise, the contributors are Dennis M. Kennedy, Tom Mighell, Marty Schwimmer and Ernest Svenson.

As for why they call it “Between Lawyers,” the answer is here.

    Actually, “between lawyers” is acceptable. At least Bryan Garner says so. “[T]he only ironclad distinction is that stated in OED. Between expresses one-to-one relations of many things, and among expresses collective and undefined relations.” Dict. Modern Legal Usage 105 (2d ed. 1995). He cites the U.S. Constitution, Art. VII, for one example: “The Ratification of the Covnentions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.”
