Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries/L’Association canadienne des bibliothèques de droit (CALL/ACBD) sent out a reminder today that members of CALL/ACBD have until 31 March 2008 to nominate a person or organization to receive the Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.

Although it would be extremely presumptuous of me to suggest that readers of SLAW who are also members of CALL/ACBD think of SLAW as a possible recipient (in light of the high calibre of past recipients of this award – listed here if you scroll down the page), it would be an honour to just be nominated . . . :->

Joking aside, this is a very nice reward in honour of Hugh Lawford, one of the leaders in the world in online legal information systems. I was luck to be at Queen’s Law in the early 1980’s when Quicklaw was in its early stages.
