The best in Canadian law blogs

January 4 2016 4 January 2016

Now in its tenth year, the Clawbies continue in their mission to draw attention to the growing number of valuable legal blogs in Canada, and to welcome newcomers to the scene by giving them some helpful exposure.

The team at CBA National is delighted to be counted among the 2015 award winners in the Legal News category.

It's an accolade just to be nominated among other leaders in the field, namely Legal Feeds, the blog of Canadian Lawyer magazine, and the Legal Post, the blog of the National Post’s legal section.

We are also flattered by the judges’ recognition of CBA National as “changing the standards by which legal magazine blogs are judged.” One of the things we try to do at CBA National is to bring different perspectives into the many debates and conversations about legal issues, generate new ideas and examine new ways of addressing some of the challenges facing the legal profession, and question our views of how we currently structure society from a legal standpoint.

It’s a challenge covering as much ground as we do, and we would not be able to achieve any of that without the many contributions of CBA members, academics, staff writers and other legal bloggers that frequently appear on our site. To all of them, and our growing number of readers, we offer our sincere gratitude.  We also would like to reserve a special thank you to the Canadian Bar Association for its ongoing support of our mission.

As a final word, we would also like to congratulate the prolific and always relevant Paul Daly at Administrative Law Matters, who won the Fodden Award (shorthand for Best Canadian Law Blog), and all the other Clawbie winners in 2015.  To readers out there who haven’t yet had the chance to do so, take the time to discover these excellent law blogs, and feel free to share with us any new discoveries.

Have a great 2016!
