Geeklawyer is also proposing a UK Legal Blogging Conference in 2007. The idea seems to be generating some interest - see this post and this post. Count me in - at least as my identity is known I will not have to attend with a paper bag over my head to protect my anonymity - Ruthie has cruelly suggested that geeklawyer wear a plastic bag.
Geeklawyer mentions the possibility of the conference getting CPD accreditation with the Bar Council and Law Society. On the subject of CPD, I contacted The Law Society last October to enquire whether the time I have spent on this blog can count towards my CPD requirement. They replied: "The blog you have worked on could count towards the above requirement as long as you ensure that you are gaining work related skills and that you keep details in your training record which may be requested for monitoring". Hopefully, other blawgers may find this useful.
[Edit: I've just noticed this is my 200th post on this blog. Maybe I should get out more often...]
