My 2012 Clawbies Nominations
It’s that time of year again. ¬†The¬†Canadian¬†Law Blog Awards (the Clawbies), are awarded once a year to recognize outstanding Canadian legal blogs. ¬†The nomination process¬†involves peer endorsement and from there a select number of blogs are chosen for recognition.
The decision makers include Steve Matthews, author of the¬†Law Firm Web Strategy Blog¬†who, if he keeps up the good work, may just give law firm marketers a good name. ¬†Jordan Furlong of¬†Law 21, who has no shortage of wisdom for lawyers reminding us that we must provide our services¬†in a competitive and beneficial way otherwise learn that we may not be as¬†irreplaceable¬†as we may think. ¬†And last but not least, Simon Fodden who is the godfather of the most successful Canadian legal blog, Slaw.
My first nomination is not a blog. ¬†So much for following¬†directions. ¬† Eugene Meehan’s Supreme Court of Canada newsletter is the source to follow for keeping appraised of all developments at the Supreme Court of Canada. ¬†You can find it and subscribe to it here. ¬†I figure it being a newsletter instead of a blog is a mere formality the powers that be should overlook.
Next, sticking in my neck of the woods, I’d like to¬†nominate¬†Dye and Durhams’ BC Law Watch for¬†providing¬†current, useful¬†information ¬†on all things law related in BC.
Lastly David Bilinsky, the man who brought me into the world of Blawgging¬†deserves¬†yet another nod. ¬†It would be a shame if his streak of 5 consecutive years of Clawbies recognition came to an end.
OK, lastly for a second time,¬†another¬†shout out to the always¬†outspoken¬†Antonin Pribetic for not only his¬†comprehensive¬†posts but for never ¬†being shy of picking a fight in his Trial Warrior Blog and advancing clear and authoritative positions in a sometimes bland ‘happysphere‘.
