- brevity and succinctness of posts
- focused on law
- engaging and discussion
Here’s his description of us:
LAW IS COOL
Launched last year by a group of Canadian law students, this is another impressive example of the many heads approach. Law is Cool’s primary audience is other students, both current and aspiring (see Law21 post referenced above). The authors hope it will also help young lawyers preparing for bar exams, as well as the general public. The almost-daily posts, of varying but generally quite decent quality, range from the humorous (“Chimps Decry Discrimination“) to the brief and informational (new QuickCITE feature in LexisNexis) to serious legal commentary and analysis (use of CCTV cameras, striking down of the Safe Third Country Agreement).
Some of the other sites he mentions, using his “no particular order,” include:
- MICHAEL GEIST
- LAW FIRM WEB STRATEGY
- THE BIZOP NEWS
- TORONTO ESTATE LAW BLOG
- LIBRARY BOY
- RULE OF LAW
You can view the text version of the magazine here (see page 24).
Congratulations to all.
Gary Wise of the Wise Law Blog extends his congratulations as well. He also lists some honourable mentions:
