Before giving you today’s list of ABA Journal resources that landed in my in-box this morning, I want to announce my appearance on the Journal’s dot com front page in its “Ask the Experts” feature.
If you have a question — any question — relating to negotiation strategy and tactics, conflict resolution, mediation advocacy, persuading the opposition that he doesn’t fully understand just how $%#*^ his case is, the social psychology of conflict, or the settlement of that pesky piece of litigation that is turning moldy on the upper right hand corner of your desk, just write it into the email box here and your answer will be quickly forthcoming.
Self-promo out of the way, here’s the latest on ABAJournal.com resources:
ABAJournal.com has created four new features designed for busy lawyers.
Blawg Search: We’ve partnered with Justia.com, the leading legal information portal, to create a search engine covering all of the 1,800-plus blogs in our directory — including yours. It’s like Google for lawyers, pinpointing in an instant the most sophisticated and up-to-date commentary by legal professionals on any topic. Use the search box at the top of any of our pages (including our homepage: www.abajournal.com), and on the search results page click on the “Blawg Results” tab. Plus you can subscribe to an RSS feed of any search to follow the results in your feed reader.
News Widget: Now you can add continuously updated ABA Journal headlines to your blog or to personalized pages like iGoogle or Netvibes with our news widget. We’re posting 25 to 50 fresh stories every business day, so you’re sure to deliver the latest breaking legal news to your readers. Visit our widget page to grab the free code: www.abajournal.com/widgets

And to celebrate winning the Webby People’s Voice Award in the Law category, we’re letting our readers pick which of three acceptance speeches we’ll give at the June 10 ceremony. Each is just five words long — the maximum length the Webby Awards will allow. To cast your vote, visit: http://www.abajournal.com/news/webbyspeechvote/
We hope you find that these features, and more that will be coming in the months ahead, make ABAJournal.com even more useful and informative. We love getting feedback from our readers. If you have suggestions, drop us a line: www.abajournal.com/contact
