Blog: Anonymous Lawyer

This one is a little older but definitely still worth mentioning.

Anonymous Lawyer was started by Jeremy Blachman during his second year at Harvard Law School. He began writing blog entries in the voice of a powerful hiring partner at a multi-million dollar law firm. The Anonymous Lawyer character is everything you expect a hotshot lawyer to be; arrogant, soulless, malicious, ambitious, and, more surprisingly, funny.

The site gained such a strong following (particularly with law students and people working in the legal world) that Blachman was offered the opportunity to publish a book based on the blog. The book is all original material with a thorough plotline (although still written in blog-entry form). I just started reading the book a few days ago, and so far I’m really enjoying it (even though I know nothing about law firms and lawyers).

The website itself has slowed down significantly since the book hit shelves, with Blachman’s last post being an apology for what has been somewhat of a hiatus. The archives, however, go back several years and there is a lot of good reading to be done there. Anonymous Lawyer might not be for everyone, but I definitely recommend that you give it a shot.
