My 20 Most-Read Posts of 2022


Every year since 2010, I have compiled a list of my most-popular posts. In some years, there has seemed to be a theme across the most-read posts. But this year, they seem to span the gamut of topics I cover, from analytics to artificial intelligence, from legal ethics to legal research, from new companies starting up to established companies shutting down, from products designed for litigation to products embroiled in litigation.

Notably, the post that captured the most eyes was about New York becoming the first state to mandate CLE in cybersecurity, privacy and data protection. The second most popular post was a test of the BriefCatch legal editing software using the leaked draft of the Supreme Court’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Third was Thomson Reuters’ launch of the latest version of Westlaw.

How I List These

Note that I have two lists here. First, I list the 20 most popular posts of 2022, listing only posts first published during 2022. After that, I list the most popular posts of the year, without regard to the year the post was originally published. In both cases, the rankings are based only on 2022 traffic, not all-time traffic.

Neither ranking includes my tally of the states that have adopted the duty of technology competence. I have also excluded any posts relating to ballots and voting for the Startup Alley at ABA TECHSHOW, as those posts receive inflated numbers of hits.

For somewhat of a time capsule of the past decade in legal technology, see my prior years’ lists of my most-popular posts: 2021, 20202019201820172016201520142013201220112010).
