2014: Clawbies and Year in Review

Nominations are open for this year’s Canadian Law Blog Awards.

I’m going to make one repeat nomination and a couple of unconventional ones. (1) Léonid Sirota (again: his constitutional law posts on Double Aspect are outstanding); (2) Colin Lachanche (he piloted CanLII Connects, which is a superb project that aims to make expert commentary and case summaries available for free; (3) U of T’s Bora Laskin Law Library (something as simple as providing tables of contents for recent journals is incredibly useful).

Here is my personal top 10 from 2014 in chronological order. Happy (re) reading!
