Remember the BC Law Student Blogging About Her Client?

I wrote in September about Anusia Hirsch, the Boston College Law School student who was doing something most legal bloggers know better not to do, blogging about her clients (2L Tests Ethical Limits by Blogging About Client).

Now, the Boston College faculty newspaper, The Boston College Chronicle, has a story about Hirsch and her blog: Social Media and the Law: A Gray Area. She tells the magazine that she hopes to continue engaging in social media and to inspire others to share their law school experiences.

“My hope is that people continue to open their minds to connect and learn in different ways, not to shut things out simply because it hasn’t been done before,” Hirsch told the Chronicle. “It is possible to embrace this form of technology and do it in a way that is respectful to everyone involved.”

  • This is certainly fraught territory, and an area I’m interested in as I launch my own law blog with the help of some current law students. But I applaud Hirsch and anyone who is willing to push boundaries and find the limits of where time honored legal practices fit in the new digital landscape.
