Blogging and microblogging in court. James Doleman started blogging during the Tommy Sheridan trial in 2006. At a seminar organised by Strathclyde University's Centre for Law, Crime and Justice, he talked about why social media in criminal courts should be seen as an opportunity rather than a problem. Social media offers a new set of media tools that can open up justice and enable citizens to take an active role in the world: going to courtrooms or local council meetings and telling people what is happening. James explained why he thought problems tend to be exaggerated and reflected on how they can be managed.
