A Short Open Note to Criminal Defense Lawyers

Kinda nifty to see, but tastes like shit. Just like LISTSERVs.

Dear Fellow CDLs:

Stop reading listservs.

Listserv technology is the Coelacanth of the internet–nifty that it remains after all these years, but of no practical value.

Several things, in my estimation, are more productive than listservs. Practicing your origami skills is one.

If you truly have a question about upcoming cases and clients, get on the phone with a trusted colleague. They will likely enjoy the chat. If you don’t have someone of the “trusted colleague” variety, spend your spare time finding one.


Your friend,
