Since 2005, the Canadian Law Blog Awards, (Clawbies), a project of Stem Legal Web Enterprises, has annually presented category awards to blogs published the Canadian legal industry (see Lawblogs.ca). The Clawbies website notes that when the Canadian Law Blog Awards started there were but 43 law blogs in the running, now there are over 400. This makes the ABlawg particularly honoured and thrilled to be the recipient of the 2012 Best Law School/Law Professor Blog.
Here is the text that accompanied the New Year’s Eve announcement:
… Best Law School/Law Professor Blog
This is always one of our toughest calls, since the quality of Canadian legal academic blogs is uniformly high. This year, however, our choice was made easier by the outstanding performance by ABlawg, the University of Calgary Faculty of Law Blog. Relevant and well-read beyond the walls of academia, the ABlawg is frequently consulted by practitioners throughout the province of Alberta, and it’s the rare law school periodical of any type that can lay claim to that accomplishment.
ABlawg is indebted to many for this accomplishment, praise, and honor, including its long-time supporters, excellent contributors, engaged readers, enthusiastic commentators, tireless editorial staff and volunteers, and, of course, those who showed their appreciation and support by nominating ABlawg for an award. Many thanks to all.
ABlawg wishes a peaceful, optimistic, and Happy New Year’s to all.
