As any subscriber to The Trial Lawyer knows, politics is how laws get made. Perhaps more explicitly, laws are made by politicians. Therefore lawyers tend, to greater or lesser degrees, to follow politics not just as observers, but as interested parties. It is in that light that we have created our first political blog, "Politics, etc." We hope you'll visit regularly for entries on politics, the law, and how they affect trial lawyers. Do you do some political blogging that you'd like to share with our readers? Then, by all means, send it to us so we can share it with our readers. Just e-mail it to us at . As crazy as politics seems to be getting these days, there's plenty to write about and share your opinion.
