New York Times Features NY Law Firm Associate - Opinionista

Today's NYTimes features Opinionista and her very popular blog called Opinionistas on the inner workings of a large NY law firm. If your interested in big law firm culture give it a read.

Many are watching this to see what actions will be taken by the law firm against the anonymous associate blogger of the firm -- if it is disclosed who she is and where she works. More interesting to me is the publicity that will likely surround any actions or inactions taken by the law firm. They better have their PR people ready for this one.

Once again this highlights an increasingly more common legal issue of what rights employees have to blog at home and at work about employer related issues. If you haven't already done so it is time to take a look at your employee handbook and establish some reasonable policies. Stay tuned!
