On December 31, 2019, this blog was inducted into the Canadian Law Blog Awards Hall of Fame. As noted by the organizers of the “Clawbies”:
Every year, we add several names to the Clawbies Hall of Fame. Publications must have at least three prior Clawbie awards for consideration. Once they have joined the Hall of Fame ranks, they are no longer eligible for future Clawbies, but can show off their achievement with the official Clawbies Hall of Fame badge.
Four-time Clawbies winner Sean Bawden’s job title has changed, but the quality of his blogging hasn’t. Sean won a “best new blog” Clawbie in 2012, and seven years later he’s in the Hall of Fame. Congratulations on your formidable track record, Sean!
When I started blogging in 2012, when I was then an associate at what was then known as Beament Green, now Beament Hebert Nicholson LLP, I had no real sense of where this blog, nor I, would go. Seven years later it is a bit of an understatement to say that my “job title” has changed. And to note where I am now would also be to overlook the six and one-half years that I spent at Kelly Santini LLP.
I have written self indulgent reflective pieces before, so I won’t add to that now.
Once again, thank you for reading.
