Social Media, Blogging and Tweeting

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Social media – in particular blogging and Tweeting – offers unprecedented oppor- tunities for legal academics. At the same time it can be a distraction from ‘normal’ academic work and has potential pitfalls that must be avoided. The rewards, however, outweigh the risks, and most legal academics should consider embracing the use of social media. It can help with the development of ideas, with career progression, with becoming part of a wider academic community, with the dissemination of research – and, as well as all that, can be highly enjoyable.
