Looking for good law-related blogs? Check out Blawg Review, which has weekly installments describing law blogs (blawgs). This week's offering is Blawg Review Awards 2006.
Congratulations to Shlep: the Self-Help Law ExPress, which was named Best Law Blog in the Public Interest. Shlep is the brainchild of David Giacalone, who keeps the posts flowing. (I'm on the Shlep team and contribute from time to time, but David posts more than the other teammates and I put together.)
Congratulations also to Evan Schaeffer, whose posts from I often mention, for being recognized for "a lifetime of achievement in blog years" for Evan Schaeffer's Legal Underground and Illinois Trial Practice Weblog. Evan also made it onto Dennis Kennedy's Blawggies list, with Illinois Trial Practice Weblog being named the Best Practice-Specific Legal Blog. Kennedy says:
Evan's blog is exceedingly well-written and loaded with practical tips and insights. I also enjoy Evan's occasional impassioned efforts to defend trial lawyers from the constant stream of criticism they get. I don't think he's been able to change many opinions, but I admire the effort. Evan's now written a book on deposition techniques, in no small part because of his work on this blog. If you are a trial lawyer, this blog is a must-read. If you have to hire a trial lawyer, this blog is a valuable read to help you understand the process and to evaluate what your lawyer is doing.
