MINNEAPOLIS (November 28, 2012)—Editors of the ABA Journal announced earlier this week that they have selected Arbitration Nation (www.arbitrationnation.com) as one of the top 100 best blogs for a legal audience. Arbitration Nation is the only arbitration blog featured in the Blawg 100, and one of only two by Minnesota authors.
Leonard, Street and Deinard shareholder Liz Kramer, who practices in the firm's construction and business and commercial litigation groups, authors Arbitration Nation. She started the blog in August of 2011 and posts weekly about cases interpreting the Federal Arbitration Act and trends in arbitration law. Her blog was a natural outgrowth of her work for construction and franchise clients, who often have arbitration clauses in their contracts.
"Each year, our choices become tougher," said ABA Journal editor and publisher Allen Pusey. "Blogging has become such a staple of professional communication that keeping up with our own directory of more than 3,500 blogs by lawyers, judges, law professors or even law students is more formidable than it's ever been."
"I am thrilled to be included in this list of outstanding legal bloggers," said Liz Kramer. "So many industries rely on arbitration to resolve disputes ranging from simple consumer complaints to small business disagreements to complicated class actions. Yet most lawyers learn nothing about arbitration in law school. I hope to continue helping businesses and lawyers around the country fill in that knowledge gap."
