It’s that time of year when we are asked to recognize the hard work of Canadian bloggers who take to heart all things legal. This year, with so many good new Canadian law blogs out there, the competition for Clawbies will be especially tough . The Clawbies awards recognize the Canadian legal blogosphere’s best and brightest: the interesting, innovative and informative sites that readers rely on for legal news and interpretation. Nominations come from peers, via social media (particularly Twitter) and blog posts. From the nominations, the Clawbies organizers select number of blogs for recognition.
Last year, First Reference Talks was proud to make the finalists short list and we thank you, our peers and our readers.
This year, I would like to recommend to readers (and nominate), the following three great employment law-related blogs:
- Stringer LLP (formerly Stringer Brisbin Humphrey), human resources blog
- Quebec Labour Law – Droit du Travail au Québec, started by Gabriel Granatstein, a lawyer with the Norton Rose Group (formerly known as Ogilvy Renault LLP); co-edited by Geneviève Lay, also a lawyer at the Norton Rose Group
- Employment and Human Rights Law in Canada, by Lisa Stam, employment lawyer with Baker McKenzie
These blogs are all very current, informative and to the point. I regularly enjoy reading their blog posts on important employment law and related issues and legal developments.
In addition, the following blogs deserve mention and nomination:
- Haber & Associates’ blog, by Matt Lalande on wrongful death, personal injury and employment law
- Chang and Boos Canada-US and Immigration Law Center, by Henry J. Chang, a partner in the business immigration group of Blaney McMurtry LLP
They keep you informed on all things related to wrongful death, personal injury, immigration law and more, and provide helpful tips for legal professionals and businesses.
All the bloggers mentioned above provide real services to the legal, HR and business community.
