Every year I reiterate that @erikmagraken's legal blog the BC Injury Law Blog should get a #clawbies award. And this year is no different!
— Kyla Lee (@IRPlawyer) December 3, 2018

@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.
— EmmaAcumenLaw (@EmmaAcumenLaw) December 3, 2018

Not only is her video series the only coverage of Cases That Should Have Gone to The Supreme Court of Canada but didn’t, it’s also great viewing which is why @IRPlawyer should be nominated for #clawbies2018. Go Kyla! pic.twitter.com/X1WLoZ3nYW

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.
— Brandon Moscoe (@BrandonMLawyer) December 3, 2018

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.

An item I posted last week on Slaw... We're going to be partnering with the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL/ACBD) in a few weeks time to bring Slaw readers recent book reviews from the Canadian Law Library Review (CLLR).

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!
