Slaw Makes the ABA’s Top 100 List

At this moment in time I’m delighted to report an honour that’s fairly unique: Slaw made the ABA’s list. With all due respect to Simon and my other friends,
at the end of the day, it’s absolutely not rocket science what Slaw does.
It’s a 24/7 nightmare but we shouldn’t of underestimated the readership.


Moderated by Simon Fodden, professor emeritus at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Slaw was start­ed largely for the legal research and IT community in Canada, but it may soon transcend its tech designa­tion. The name Slaw was chosen in deference to Salon and Slate and “the notion that a cooperative weblog with many contributors is bound to consist of a great many (nutritious) small pieces in rather a jumble.” Despite its Canadian emphasis, Slaw’s topics are techno­-logi­cally universal and insightful.

We’re in good company with three other friends:

FP Legal Post
This blog from Canada’s National Post covers law firm news from Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. But its authors also delight in writing cheeky posts about oddball law stories from all over the world.

Believing that the business of law is on the brink of massive change, Law21 stakes out a front-row seat as a new practice—fueled by collaboration, innovation and client service—takes the stage. Passing out the popcorn is Jordan Furlong, a lawyer and editor of the Canadian Bar Association’s National magazine.

The Precedent Blog
This is the blog of Precedent, the Canadian magazine of “law and style.” Look here for weekly columns on fashion and wine, as well as roundups of legal news affecting our neighbors to the north.


  1. Beat me to it Simon! Shall we give it our full-court Canadian press? ;)

  2. Congratulations to the regular contributors who provide the nutritious small (and sometimes larger) pieces that we all enjoy, and that the ABA reviewers found tasty too. Slaw is a treat. Thanks.

  3. They are keen to have people vote for their favourites among the winners in each category. One of the advantages of a cooperative blog, surely, is that we should be able to get off to a flying start in the vote count. The URL to go to to vote in our category is:

    Let ‘er rip.

  4. You guys rock. Congratulations!!

  5. Right back at you, Jordan. And you, a relative late comer! Well done.
