Seventh Circuit and Wikis

The Seventh Circuit just introduced a really neat tool that I posted on at Legal Blogwatch: a wiki that judges and practitioners can update with helpful tips and advice on court practice. The wiki will help Seventh Circuit newbies, but as I wrote at Blogwatch, more experienced lawyers can use the wiki for marketing. Let’s say you’re aware of a strange quirk in the Seventh Circuit rules. Post it on the wiki, with a link to your website and blog. Other lawyers visiting the site might come to view you as an authority, and might contact you with a referral or a question, which could lead to paying work. And imagine how much prestige you’d earn if a judge like Posner or Easterbrook jumped in with a “me too!” to your comment. Perhaps you could even become the next Howard Bashman!
