#clawbies2018 I am thrilled to nominate Objection for a CLAWBIE award for best podcast in 2018. It is both informative and entertaining while highlighting key issues. https://t.co/AEw5uBId9c to listen!
We were lucky enough to have @CamilleLabchuk as a guest a few months ago. The Paw and Order podcast she co-hosts is really great and definitely deserves a Best Legal Podcast award at #clawbies2018 Check out @AnimalJustice
@IRPlawyer's video series Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada should get a #clawbies2018 award because it highlights a side of our legal system that we don't often see while being fun and informative.
If you haven't seen any of @IRPlawyer video series Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada But Didn't it is a must watch. It is interesting, fun, and should get a #clawbies2018 award.
Deserving of the #clawbies2018 nomination is @IRPlawyer because of her Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada But Didn't video series. It is fun to watch and most importantly, very informative.
What a compliment from this brilliant lawyer. Everyone needs to go follow Sarah asap; she's not only fighting the good fight in Hamilton, she has an amazing blog that demystifies the law around labour, employment and human rights.
And special mention to @ElsaAsce and @jennifertchan for being workplace law folks with blogs tackling a range of issues relevant to lawyers and others with an emphasis on honesty and progressive values. And Alcohol and Advocacy, because I like it. #clawbies2018
@SeanRobichaud ‘s Of Counsel is valuable to my experience as an articling student: I learn; I’m inspired; I’m empowered; I think about what made me go into law. I get so much direction from every single episode #clawbies2018https://t.co/cXXRxs0d5y
It's #clawbies2018 time already? So many great podcasts/blogs this year, hard to narrow to 3! My votes go to: - @IRPlawyer's podcast on cases that should have gone to the SCC (but didn't) - @InHouseAllies blog/podcast are both great - @EvaChanWeb Your go-to social media blog

An early delivery on my New Year's resolution to get more legal information professionals and law librarians (and some of our former LL Slaw-authors, for that matter) to publish on Slaw.
I've held the reigns of Slaw for four years now, and while we've added a few new voices, I've had the nagging guilt that we're not doing enough to support the visibility of the profession.
I'm hoping we can do better in 2019.
These reviews will be a valuable addition to Slaw, and I'm sure our audience of practicing lawyers and legal academics will find them helpful. Not to mention the law library community themselves. Enjoy!
