Nominations - Best Law Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Law Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):

Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

Constitutionally Correct (Alliance Defense Fund's blog)



http://volokh.com/ The best choice.

The SoCal Law Blog


If you care about our Constitution, Glenn Greenwald is the go-to guy.

Ann Althouse

I nominate both Concurring Opinions (concurringopinions.com) and PrawfsBlawg (http://prawfsblawg.blogs.com), but not necessarily in that order...

Only a few months old, so I'm not too shy either:

Urban Law Journal


JURIST - Paper Chase


Serious law. Primary sources. Global perspective.

Daily Dose of Queer

Blog about IP & IT law from a UK perspective. Pragmatic and practical.

Main site- http://impact.freethcartwright.com
Feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Impact

Strategic HR Lawyer

Blog about Information technology and intellectual property from Brett Trout


Slaw - The Canadian co-op blog on law, research & technology.


The most substantive, credible, up to date, and relevant as noted by the true scholars of the appellate court community:

Absolutely essential reading for law and religion practitioners:


On Point -- A New Take on Legal News
Primary sources; national news coverage; graphics.

I agree . . . SCOTUSBlog


I'd like to nominate the following blog for best law blog:


The name of the blog is Tasty Morsels. It's not yet on the home page of the restaurantlawgroup.com, but it's an easy click on the menu.

It's about food, restaurant industry and the law. (I think I'll nominate it under businesses, too, if that's okay.)

The StandDown Texas Project. Death penalty and criminal justice news.

I would have loved to nominate my own blog (http://capitaldefenseweekly.com) but I have to say the three best this year, without a doubt are Loblaw Law Blog (http://www.appellatedecisions.blogspot.com), (http://standdown.typepad.com) & SCOTUSblog

A few other blogs really that some may wish to include but I don't include as they appear to be appropriate for another group are Balkinization (http://balkin.blogspot.com/) (academic), Volokh Conspiracy (http://volokh.com)(academic), Sentencing Blog (acadamic) and How Appealling (http://howappealing.law.com)(media).

I also nominate myself:

The Legal Reader

I'd like to nominate:
"The Grotian Moment" Saddam Hussein Trial Blog.


It's linked to by the Library of Congress, hosts the prosecution's exhibits in Arabic and English, won a few awards, and has even been turned into a book!

It's partly my blog and book, so this is admittedly gratuitous self promotion. :-)

LexBlog is an excellent resource for blawg related news:


The Common Scold also deserves to win:


Consumer Law & Policy Blog
large group blog by profs and practitioners, including a couple outside the U.S.


I think this one goes here...


Always on top.WTPS3

Stop the ACLU
