Awards honor best law blogs, podcasts

This week brought two sets of awards for best law-related blogs, and I am proud to say that both gave honors to two of my projects — the legal affairs podcast Coast to Coast that I cohost with J. Craig Williams and the blog Legal Blog Watch that I coauthor with Carolyn Elefant on Law.com.

The first set of awards announced this week was Dennis Kennedy’s annual Blawggie awards for best law-related blogs. Kennedy gave his Best Legal Podcast award to Coast to Coast and named Legal Blog Watch as Best Legal Blog Digest (in a tie with the excellent Stark County Law Library Blog).

Next came the Blawg Review Awards 2006, in which the anonymous Blawg Review editor honored the best law blogs in numerous categories. The editor recognized Legal Blog Watch as best in the category Blog Journalism and named Coast to Coast as Best Legal Podcast.

My sincere gratitude to Dennis Kennedy and Anonymous Editor for including these projects. At Coast to Coast, I am honored to work not only with Craig Williams, but also with the behind-the-scenes professionals at Legal Talk Network who produce and engineer the program. And at Legal Blog Watch, I am equally honored to work with Carolyn Elefant and the top-notch and talented editors and production staff at Law.com.

Both sets of awards named many well-deserving blogs and I commend you to review both and visit their honorees.
