Best Law Blog

| | Comments (83)

Nominate your choice for Best Law Blog.

Update (Oct. 17): Over the next 24 hours we will be closing nominations for most categories. This is a manual process so it takes a while to complete. As long as a category allows you to enter a comment (which is how you submit a nomination) nominations for that category are still open. When the option to leave a comment is not available you'll know nominations for that category are closed. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services your comments will be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment, but all anonymous comments will eventually be posted. Only authenticated comments will be published immediately.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" nomination for a site you're encouraged to use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2007.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

This is, by far, the best legal blog I have found on the web.

cbliz said:

Warehouses of Neglect explores human rights violations against children and young adults in Bulgaria's network of "social care homes". It includes mission diaries of the author's research in Dzhurkovo, Petrovo and Sofia, with detailed analysis of Bulgaria's international law obligations. More recently, the blog has become a platform for campaigners seeking to dismantle Bulgaria's network of social care homes, especially following the documentary "Bulgaria's Abandoned Children" (TrueVision, 2007), which was broadcast on BBC 4 in the UK in September 2007.

The URL for the Warehouses of Neglect blog (nominated above) is:

You need fresh legal blogs in there, not the same old stuff. The best of the new ones is:

New York Personal Injury Law Blog by Eric Turkewitz

SHG said:

Eric Turkewitz at New York Personal Injury Law Blog is superb on a daily basis, but was brilliant in his breaking and handling of the Dr. Flea Blog, possibly the most important piece in blawging this year.

Richard Watson said:

I nominate Friedman's Religion Clause blog. While it may be focused on only one discrete topic, it's the best out there.

Groklaw - it not only invented a new form of
legal journalism, it changed the course of
the SCO litigation.

A nomination for Lowering the Bar, a legal-humor site that is probably funnier than you are expecting a legal-humor site to be.

(Sorry if I've posted this twice -- I'm not able to get signed in so I can't tell.)

Best law snark in cyberspace.

Manpower Employment Blawg -- truly life-changing, mind-altering and mood-enhancing

Magic City Harvard Lawyer

Best Miami law blog, best law blog on Florida condo contracts.

This blawg focuses on First Amendment, entertainment, and intellectual property law issues as well as commentary on legal practice and legal education issues.

There is no better commentator than Marc J. Randazza, an associate at Weston, Garrou, DeWitt & Walters in Altamonte Springs, Fla. He is also an adjunct professor at Barry University's Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando, Fla.

The Legal Satyricon, Mark J. Randazza

Edward Adams said:

This is a great blog for the current happenings within the area of tax exempt entities. It's new, and maybe not as sophisticated as some of the others, but it is fantastic!

Anand Desai said:

I would love to nominate myself, but if I am the only one to nominate myself, then I don't really think that I belong on the list.

Therefore, allow me to nominate what I think is the most useful blawg on the net.... John Welch's TTABlog.

As far as "most wisdom imparted" goes to Jon Katz's Underdog Blog.

Chris Sanchirico said:

TaxProf Blog is excellent.

Helen Waittes said:

The Pension Protection Act Blog is excellent.

Pension Protection Act Blog

Chris Erb said:

I saw one tax nomination already, but Kelly Phillips Erb's taxgirl blog actually makes tax interesting.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am her husband, but she deserves the nomination in spite of that! Author Profile Page said:

Site name: The Dumbass Daily - News from the shallow end of the gene pool.

Stupid crime stories, including a lot of high school teacher sex scandals

All the information, facts and details you can take about multi-tier justice and law enforcement in Ontario, and never ending occupation.

Even Small Dead Animals can not touch the details of content, information and facts and no longer "links" to this site. :-(

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!

We're on the lookout for your quotes about The 2007 Weblog Awards.
