"Law-related blogging starting to see a coming of age" -- But can a law blogger ever be considered a "journalist"?

Congratulations to The Indiana Law Blog's Marcia Oddi for being selected by the Indiana Judges Association to receive its responsible journalism award. The IJA gives two “Excellence in Public Information and Education” awards each year. One award is presented to a member of the Indiana judiciary for special efforts in community relations. In addition, an award is presented to a member of the news media for efforts in responsible reporting on the Indiana judiciary. Marcia will be presented with the latter award, which is richly deserved.
