My 2018 Clawbies Nomination
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.
I’m a Clawbies senior citizen having my first interaction with the awards almost a decade ago. You can’t tell my age from my profile pic above because I sneakily have chosen not to update it for 14 years! Before being given my bus pass discount and shuffled away I would like to make my 2018 nomination. This year I endorse Vancouver criminal lawyer Kyla Lee.
I won’t even nominate a specific blog (Steve and Jordan, you guys can figure out what to do with this curveball, whatever your solution make sure it involves handing out a Clawbie!). I just outright nominate Kyla and her entire social media and traditional media footprint which is big enough to swallow a BigLaw firm’s marketing department whole. Kyla is a one woman media army using new and old media to make the law far more understandable and accessible, and that’s truly what effective legal blogging is all about. Not to mention she is a heck of a good lawyer as well.
Check out her work on Twitter, website, Driving Law Podcast, Blog or just about every major newspaper across BC and Canada.
Great work Kyla!
