With LegalTech New York ready to go next week, affiliates Law.com and Law Technology News today announced a special platform to showcase those who will blogging from or about the Feb. 5-7 event. As many of you know, I coauthor Law.com’s Legal Blog Watch together with Carolyn Elefant. During LegalTech, Law.com will turn over Legal Blog Watch and its daily e-mail alert to all bloggers covering the show. Law.com Executive Editor David Snow explained the plan in an e-mail he sent today to a number of bloggers:

“If you’re planning to attend LTNY and blog about it, please drop us a line now at legalblogwatch@alm.com with the name of the blog and the bloggers. That way we’ll know who to expect to hear from next week, and we’ll be able to post a note about our blogger-participants.

“After you post on your blog, send us the URL (permalink) with an intro sentence about the post to legalblogwatch@alm.com. Our Legal Blog Watch editor will post them — in a style similar to that of the EDD Update Blog. Be sure to include your name, the blog name, your phone number and email address in case we need to contact you.

“We’ll highlight this LTNY Special Edition of Legal Blog Watch on Law.com, the Law Technology News website, Law.com Legal Technology and our associated blogs: EDD Update, Sean Doherty’s Law.com Legal Technology and Monica Bay’s The Common Scold.”

Two other important notes.

  • Bloggers who are journalists, consultants or analysts (but not vendors) are entitled to free press credentials. E-mail credential requests to legalblogwatch@alm.com by noon on Monday and pick up the credentials at the show registration desk.
  • All bloggers are welcome to attend an informal bloggers gathing Wednesday, 9 to 10 a.m., at the Pettite Trianon Room, on the 3rd floor of the New York Hilton, where LegalTech is held. There will be lousy coffee and mediocre Danish, Snow promises.

I will be at LegalTech Tuesday and Wednesday and look forward to meeting many, many bloggers while I’m there.
