This is the seventh year of the Canadian Law Blog Awards. I was gratified to see so many of my own nominees recognized with Clawbie awards and mentions this year.
I am also proud to note that Wise Law Blog received the nod for this year's Clawbie in the Legal News category:
Our 2012 winner in this category is not a traditional legal media outlet; it’s a lawyer blog that does an outstanding job of filtering and curating news of interest and importance to legal professionals. The daily 140Law feature of the Wise Law Blog in Toronto receives our vote for performing, as Shaunna Mireau points out, much the same service that America’s Above The Law does for its readers: “a daily offering of legal headlines offered as a roundup post.” Garry Wise puts great effort into this consistent feature and deserves equally great appreciation for his ongoing efforts.
Runners-up: Three solid entries by our major legal media outlets:Thanks to the Clawbie judges for this honour, and for their hard work in keeping the Clawbie flame a-burning in Canada's legal blogosphere.
Legal Feeds, by Canadian Lawyer magazine
Legal Post, by the Financial Post
National Magazine’s brand new blog, by the Canadian Bar Association.
Special thanks and recognition, of course, are also due to Rachel Spence of Wise Law, my collaborator in our daily 140Law posts.
Many thanks again, and happy new year to all.
