Barrister Adam Wagner founded the widely acclaimed UK Human Rights Blog at 1 Crown Office Row in 2010. He went on to found RightsInfo, an online platform that aims to build knowledge and support for human rights, and now practises out of Doughty Street Chambers. Both initiatives speak to his talent as a communicator of, and advocate for, human rights law in the UK.
In this podcast, Adam reflects on the reasons for his online success, how Twitter is now an effective platform for blogging in its own right and why CVs are a useless guide to a lawyer’s blogging potential. Press play or any of the links above to listen.
This is the first in a monthly series of discussions with some of the UK’s leading legal bloggers, extracts from which are being added to the Free Movement training course Introduction to legal blogging. Coming up in April: Lucy Reed on family law blogging.
