With my move from Goodwin Procter to be Chief Compliance Officer at a private equity real estate company, I have been using a blog to keep my notes. I have just open up this blog to the public. You can see what I have been up to at Compliance Building.
It was an interesting experience using a blog as a learning tool. The blog was a very convenient way to link to relevant articles, cases, statutes and regulations that play a role in my job.
If I were in law school now, I would use a blog to keep me notes. The blog platform is just a great way to keep information organized and retrievable. The blog posts are arranged in chronological order, making them easy to find based on date. I use the categories to keep the posts organized by topic. I use the tags to organize the posts around sub-topic, author and publication. Pages provide an overview, with easy editing.
I don't expect that too many of you will be interested in compliance and business ethics. To spare my readers (that's you) I started a new blog rather than putting all of the new information here. By using a new blog, I could also keep it private until I was ready (and the new company) was ready for it to be public.
I also really like the WordPress blogging platform. It offers much more funtionality and flexibility than Blogger.
