About this course

This course was last updated in January 2018.

A brief look at the elements of a successful legal blog, drawing on Free Movement editor Colin Yeo’s decade of experience. If you are thinking about starting up or taking over a blog, this is essential reading. Colin has made plenty of mistakes along the way and can tell you how to avoid them yourself!

This is the course we ask new contributors to Free Movement to take themselves.
