DCC makes the ABA Top 100 Blawgs for 2015 and this marks the 3rd year in a row that Defrosting Cold Cases is included. I cannot tell you how humbled I am. This is a wonderful surprise on the day that my blog celebrates its 6th anniversary.
Editors of the ABA Journal announced on November 23 that they had selected my blog as one of the top 100 best blogs for a legal audience. To be picked out of all the legal blogs in the United States of America is an honour.
The ABA Journal is the flagship magazine of the American Bar Association, and it is read by half of the nation’s 1.1 million lawyers every month. It covers the trends, people and finances of the legal profession from Wall Street to Main Street to Pennsylvania Avenue. It features breaking legal news updated as it happens by staff reporters throughout every business day, a directory of more than 4,000 lawyer blogs, and the full contents of the magazine.
With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that aid lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.
“For us, at the ABA Journal, this isn’t just another award. We view our annual list as service to our readers, pointing them to a collection of some of the very best legal writing and commentary on the Web. Yes, we hope those selected are proud of it. But we also hope that our readers will recognize the list itself as another portal to some very vivid, informative and entertaining conversations about issues we all care about.”
The entire ABA Blawgs directory is here.
Congratulations to all winners!
