Every year, the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) hands out the Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.
It honours a publisher (whether for-profit or not-for profit, corporate or non-corporate) that has demonstrated excellence by publishing a work, series, website or e-product that makes a significant contribution to legal research and scholarship.
The nominees for this year are:
- The Queen’s Bench Rules of Saskatchewan: Annotated, 4th ed. (Law Society of Saskatchewan Libraries)
- Juris Classeur Québec (LexisNexis Canada)
- Copyright Law, Fourth Edition (John Wiley and Sons, Inc.)
- GALLOP: Government and Legislative Libraries Online Publications Portal (Association of Parliamentary Libraries in Canada/ L’Association des bibliothèques parlementaires au Canada)
The award will be presented to the recipient at a reception during the 2014 CALL Annual Meeting in Winnipeg in late May.
Slaw.ca received the award in 2009.
