Swiss law blogs/Schweizer Blawgs?

Are there Swiss legal blogs? I asked myself this question, and at the same time found the NZZ had published an article on specialized weblogs in Switzerland, from which it appeared that there are very few weblogs of any kind there. The article, in German, is no longer available free of charge (search in archives for Wissensbeschaffer im Frondienst / Fach-Blogs im Internet als neue Informationsquelle, 25 February 2005).

I found circle.ch, ‘A weblog about libre software, law, technology, politics and the like’. Here’s a January 2005 entry:

bq. Man mag es vielleicht gehört haben, dass das Bundesstrafgericht seinen Betrieb am 1. April 2004 in Bellinzona aufgenommen hat. Nun, Bellinzona liegt nun wahrlich nicht gerade zentral, dafür kann man dem Charme südlicher Gefilde fröhnen; wenn man denn dazu kommt. Jedenfalls ist man aus der Region Bern schon fast darauf angewiesen, sich vor Ort eine Unterkunft zu organisieren, wenn man denn rechtzeitig am Gericht sein will.

bq. Es hat sich nun herausgestellt, dass Hotels in Bellinzona gar nicht etwa einfach zu finden sind [1]. Befriedigend waren dann aber die Resultate der beiden anderen Links [2,3]. Fand das irgendwie mitteilungswert ;)

Here is a collection of Swiss blogs.

Kookie’s Welt is by a lawyer but not about law.

While inspecting, I found a just.graham, a Swiss-British (non-legal) blog and a link to a BBC article on the hygiene inspection made when you move out of a Swiss flat.

bq. When the inspection ended, I was given a six-page list of improvements I needed to make and, as I ushered him towards the door, he had one last instruction.
Passing the fuse box, he pulled it open.
“Look”, he said triumphantly. “Dust!”
A week later, the house is clean, my muscles ache and my hands are sore from cleaning fluids.
