The ABA Journal has begun work on its 6th annual list of the 100 best legal blogs (or blawgs) and has announced that it is seeking the advice of its readers, via the ABAJournal.com website, on which blawgs and practice areas to include on this year's Blawg 100. Readers interested in nominating a particular blog or practice area should use the blawg 100 amici form provided on the ABA Journal website. Additional information about the Blawg 100 can also be found on the blawg 100 amici form. The form requires that anyone making a nomination provide a name, employer or law school, city, and e-mail address. The ABA Journal requires this information in order to discourage:
• Blawggers who nominate their own blawgs or nominate blawgs to which they have previously contributed posts.
• Wives and husbands who nominate their spouses' blawgs.
• Employees of law firms who nominate blawgs written by their co-workers.
• Public relations professionals in the employ of lawyers or law firms who nominate their clients' blawgs.
• Pairs of blawggers who have clearly entered into a gentlemen's agreement to nominate each other.
The ABA Journal, however, welcomes comments from readers who do not fall into the above categories.
Nominations must be submitted no later than Friday, September 7.
