Transparency seems to be a growing tendency for all kinds of business activities throughout the world, this can be seen from the growing numbers of companies/firms that open themselves to the public by making blogs.
In this regards, Legal Blog Watch has quoted the LexBlog's recent AmLaw Blogosphere report that mentioned that the number of AmLaw 200 law firms in the U.S that have blogs has increased more than twice from 39 in 2007 to 82 in 2008. The interesting thing is that those 82 law firms have a total of 227 law blogs.
The above report shows that blogs has become more and more important for lawyers, especially for promoting their services to the public. I am not sure whether law firms in Indonesia has the same tendency.
