The 9th annual Clawbies were announced today and Legal Feeds was named the top legal news blog in Canada. The blog has either been a winner or runner up in the news category since it was launched in Dec. 2010. As the proud editor of the blog, I believe our win was due to our excellent coverage that provides a broad spectrum of stories that are well written and of consequence to our target audience of Canadian lawyers, in-house counsel, judges, law students, and academics.
Double Aspect, the Canadian constitutional law blog of Leonid Sirota, won the The Fodden Award for Best Canadian Law Blog overall. "Double Aspect is everything you want to see in a law blog: it addresses important topics, it presents intellectual challenges, it’s updated frequently and at length, and it’s written in a professional yet engaging style," says the announcement.
Nominations for the Clawbies were submitted from lawyers and law bloggers across Canada by blog post or by tweet. That list was supplemented by selections from our three judges: Steve Matthews, Jordan Furlong, and Simon Fodden. And that’s how the winners are decided.
We congratulate all the winners, many of which we read and rely on on a regular basis.
