In Evolution of law students, law blogs and social media, Kevin O’Keefe, founder of LexBlog which has just launched a network of blogs numbering some 19,000 law bloggers, suggests that law students could be getting help soon in establishing a social media presence. He writes
It’s going to take boots on the ground in the form of knowledgeable and experienced law students at the law schools with the support from the mothership in Seattle – LexBlog.
Westlaw has had student reps, and so has LexNexis [sic]. We’re seeing newer legal tech companies such as casetext with student reps.
LexBlog student reps could be at a law school to help a fellow student spin up for a free professional blog in minutes through the expedited LexBlog system. They could show fellow students the social media to use from Twitter, Facebook, to LinkedIn and how to use these networking tools effectively.
A good idea I think. However on-site law librarians probably would make better LexBlog representatives.
