The 2020 Canadian Law Blog Awards (Clawbies) Are Here!

December 18, 2020

By Alan Kilpatrick

Presents under the tree, frost in the air, chestnuts roasting over a fire, and … Canadian law blogs?

That’s right!  With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s that time of year where we nominate our favourite Canadian legal content for the Canadian Law Blog Awards (Clawbies).  The 2020 Clawbies mark the fifteenth anniversary of the award.

Voting is easy.  Write a blog or social media post nominating your favourite Canadian legal content.  Tweet the post using the official hashtag #Clawbies2020.  The Clawbie team reviews the nominees and announce the winners on New Year’s Eve.

Any freely accessible Canadian legal content can be nominated for a Clawbie: blogs, videos, podcasts, social media, etc.

On that note, here are my 2020 Clawbie nominations:

CanLII’s Commentary Collection
Canada’s leading proponent of free access to law and open legal publishing, CanLII’s commentary collection grew by leaps and bounds in 2020.  The list of commentary is extensive: the British Columbia Civil Litigation Manual, the Canadian Journal of Family Law, and more!

Great LEXpectations
Great LEXpectations, the wonderfully named Manitoba Law Library blog, has been active in the Canadian legal blogosphere since 2017.  Maintaining an active blog can be hard work!  We have to hand it to the Manitoba Law Library team, your collection of research tips, resources, and legal news is great!

Great Library Twitter Account
The Great Library leads the way with its engaging, effective, and entertaining Twitter account.  The Great Library staff craft a variety of helpful weekly posts: Legal research tips on #TipsTuesday, search tips on #WednesdayWisdom, and the always delightful #FunFactFriday.
