The Law School Hash Tags Project

Version .1 9/3/2010

 

This page is an effort to find, list and/or create a generally acceptable Twitter hashtag for every law school in the country.  Shorter is better.  Disambiguation is a big problem here.  I am not particularly happy with some of these tags.  I have seen or used a small number of these tags and made the rest up.  Some observations from this...

 

  • If you are the only law school in a state, you get #<state>law as your hash tag unless there is a shorter abbreviation for your university.
  • It seems to make sense to add "law" to every law school hashtag in order to distinguish them from their parent university.
  • A seemingly simple project like this immediately opens the Pandora's Box of taxonomy, variable naming conventions, tag disambiguation, etc. 
  • I am less sure that a list of hashtags like this is valuable than when I started.  It seemed like a good idea, but seriously, will even I bother to look these up when I want to refer to a law school or will I just make it up as I go along?  
  • Despite my doubts, it was useful to finish the project just to gain these insights. 

 

This is a first cut, so if you have suggestions or ideas, put them into the comments or send me a note at jmayer@cali.org or @johnpmayer on Twitter.
