Lisa Bloom: Bringing Legal Analysis to the Masses
Being known as a prominent attorney, author and legal analyst, Lisa Bloom is now taking her expertise to NakedLaw. NakedLaw is a legal blog created by Avvo, a leading attorney forum and directory. In a world saturated with legal blogs written in a language only lawyers seem to comprehend, NakedLaw aims to bring legal analysis to the public. The site brands itself as a blog that “exposes everyday law in a way that non-lawyers understand”. With her experience as a legal expert on networks such as CBS and CNN, Lisa Bloom excels as a featured analyst for NakedLaw. Commenting on high-profile cases and current events, Bloom is never afraid to express her opinion, all while emotionally engaging her readers through her clever writing. For example, Bloom delves into the profound implications of the Jodi Arias trial in her post, “The Larger Context of the Jodi Arias Jury’s Inability to Sentence Her to Death”. While other media sources sensationalized this story, Bloom investigates the case with almost an anthropologist’s eye. She looks into the societal association of the jury’s failure to reach a decision. She concludes that US citizens have the capacity to recognize the flaws in our legal system. As a result, people may hesitate to vote in favor of a permanent punishment such as a death sentence. In her writing, Lisa Bloom takes a current event and shows its importance in how we as a culture have established our ideology.
Attorney Lisa Bloom is no stranger to writing about how widespread crazes affect our lifestyles. She is the author of two books, Think: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World and Swagger: 10 Urgent Rules for Raising Boys in an Era of Failing Schools, Mass Joblessness and Thug Culture. In a way, Lisa Bloom is the law professor we never had. With Avvo’s NakedLaw as her figurative chalkboard, Lisa Bloom educates us on the fundamental structure that molds us as individuals and as a collective whole. Everyone should be reading NakedLaw. It not only helps up discover laws that govern us, it also helps us unearth our core values.
