The 2009 Canadian Law Blog Awards (the “CLawBies”) nominations are now open (Twitter hashtag: #Clawbies2009).
The following are my three nominees:
- Omar Ha-Redeye Blog: http://www.omarha-redeye.com/): Omar Ha-Redeye is a J.D. candidate at the University of Western Law School and a leading light in the Canadian blawging community. His publications include scientific journals, trade magazines, and contributions to university textbooks. Ha-Redeye has served as a Senior Administrator for a tsunami relief team that operated in rural Aceh, Indonesia and consulted NGO’s and businesses on crisis communications. He has taken the lead in the field of reputation management law. A frequent contributor to Slaw.ca and Law Is Cool, I admire Omar’s dedication to law, justice and human rights.
- Erik Magraken’s “BC Injury Law Blog”: http://www.bc-injury-law.com/blog: British Columbia ICBC injury claims lawyer Erik Magraken is a partner with the British Columbia personal injury law-firm MacIsaac & Company. Magraken restricts his practice exclusively to plaintiff-only personal injury claims with a particular emphasis on ICBC injury claims involving orthopaedic injuries and complex soft tissue injuries. The BC Injury Law Blog is an authoritative legal source, not only for personal injury law, but also provides important news and legal developments for practitioners on a host of other topics, including procedural and evidentiary issues.
- Dan Michaluk’s “All About Information Blog”: http://danmichaluk.wordpress.com/: Dan Michaluk, an associate at Hicks Morley LLP in Toronto, is a management-side employment and human rights lawyer who also consults on a range of information management and privacy issues. Michaluk’s blog posts and case summaries are timely, informative, succinct and beneficial to any busy practitioner.
Good luck to all of the nominees!
