2018 Canadian Law Blog Award (Clawbie) Nominations

Posted on Updated on

By Alan Kilpatrick

It’s time to nominate your favorite Canadian legal blogs for a Canadian Law Blog Award (Clawbie)!  The Clawbies were established in 2006 to showcase the high-quality legal blogs being published in Canada.  You can tweet your nominations with the #clawbies2018 Twitter hashtag.  The deadline for nominations is December 21st, 2018.

Here are the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library’s nominations for 2018:

Great LEXpectations

The Law Society of Manitoba Library launched Great LEXpectations in 2017. It features research tips, resources, and news of interest to the Manitoba legal profession.  The About GreatLEXpectations page describes how the name was created: “Great LEXpectations is a play on words of the Dickens novel, Great Expectations, and lex, the latin word for law. The library for the Law Society of Manitoba and the legal profession, is called the Great Library, thus the mashup of Great LEXpectations.”

Lawyer Drummer

Lawyer Kurt Dahl, dual member of the Law Society of Saskatchewan and British Columbia, practices entertainment, corporate, and commercial law.  He is also a rock musician and committed SaskMusic board member.  His blog, Lawyer Drummer, uniquely combines his twin passions of law and music.  This blog’s “cool factor” is through the roof.

Library Boy

Library Boy, written by Supreme Court of Canada reference librarian Michel-Adrien Sheppard, is a stalwart of Canadian legal library blogs.  Online since 2005, Library Boy was an inspiration for Legal Sourcery.  Each month, the blog features a variety of high-quality posts on legal, government, and library topics.

Robeside Assistance

The County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA) Library launched Robeside Assistance in 2016.  It is written and maintained by the CCLA’s phenomenal library staff.  Robeside Assistance features practical legal research tips and tricks, the lowdown on the latest legal resources, and compilations of recent Ottawa decisions.  We have to hand it to them, coming up with a great blog name can be difficult.  Robeside Assistance takes the cake when it comes to blog names.
