It’s that time of year again when we ask our loyal FDA Law Blog readers for just a few minutes of their time. You got it: it’s the best legal blog nomination season! And this year, there are two contests for which we’re seeking your nomination. We would love to add a couple of badges to the “Awards and Honors” collection posted on our blog webpage (it gives us the affirmation we crave), but we need your support to do that.
The 2015 ABA Blawg 100
The American Bar Association (“ABA”) has initiated the annual process for selecting the top legal blogs (or “blawgs”) in the blogosphere. The 9th iteration of the list will be revelaed later this year when the ABA announces the “Blawg 100” in the print and electronic versions of the ABA Journal. With your help, we’ve made the top 100 list four times before.
To nominate the FDA Law Blog for the 2015 Blawg 100, readers should use the Amici Form – available here – supplied by the ABA and submit a friend-of-the-blawg brief. You have only 500 characters to say why you’re a fan of the blog, so you’ll have to keep your remarks pithy. Remember, when you complete the nomination form, our URL is www.fdalawblog.net. Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than 11:59 p.m. CT on August 16, 2015. ABA editors make the final decisions about what blogs to include in the Blawg 100. We hope they’ll be impressed with what our readers have to say about us.
The Expert Institute 2015 Best Legal Blog Contest
The Expert Institute is working on a comprehensive ranking of legal blogs as a part of its 2015 Best Legal Blog Contest. The three blogs that receive the most votes overall will win small cash prizes. Every blog will be sorted into one of seven categories: Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury; Criminal; Technology; Commercial and Intellectual Property Law; Labor and Employment; Education; and Niche and Specialty.
To nominate the FDA Law Blog for the 2015 Best Legal Blog Contest, readers should use the form – available here – provided by The Expert Institute. When completing the form, you’ll be asked for a “Blog address” (www.fdalawblog.net ), to remark on “Why does this blog deserve to be nominated?”, and to identify a “Blog Category.” In terms of “Blog Category,” we think we fit into the “Niche and Specialty” group.
Thank you for your continued support!
