Monday, December 03, 2007

Your vote can help Brett McKay's "The Frugal Law Student" blog win the JDs in Training category of American Bar Association Journal's competition.

The American Bar Association Journal has selected "The Frugal Law Student," a blog written by a student from the University of Tulsa College of Law, as one of the top 100 law blogs in the country.

Now readers have the chance to vote for their favorites in 12 categories, and TU's Brett McKay is hoping you will vote for his blog about penny-pinching techniques.

Votes can be placed at: http://www.abajournal.com/blawgs/blawg100/students. Voting continues until Jan. 2.

McKay, a second-year law student from Edmond, Okla., earned his bachelors degree from the University of Oklahoma. He competes on the law school’s Board of Advocates team, is a member of the J. Ruben Clark Law Society and contributes to Dicta, the law school's student newspaper.

"The Frugal Law Student" began with simple tips for students on a tight budget and has grown into one of the more popular personal finance blogs on the web, with nearly 700 subscribers and monthly traffic approaching 24,000 visitors.

After law school, McKay plans to move on to another blog project while practicing in Tulsa.
