Asked: Our weekly question to the In-House community
The United States Air Force’s general counsel has started a blog.
So far, employees in the Air Force’s legal department have written posts linking to news items on topics such as lawyers and cybersecurity, ethical concerns in the military and high profile military cases.
The blog Lawfare asked General Counsel Charles A. Blanchard about the venture into social media:
My hope is that my team will post about developments on legal issues important to our practice. Because I am a big believer that attorneys need to know their client, I also hope to post on developments in the Air Force, Department of Defense and about the larger strategic context As you might imagine, security and other constraints can be a challenge for a project of this type so we our original content will be limited. Nonetheless, I hope that we can point to provocative and interesting work by others.
So, here’s our question for you:
Do you blog as a general counsel? And, if so, how do you decide on the content to include in the blog?
