CALL 2009 Awards

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) handed out its awards yesterday during a luncheon at its annual conference in Halifax.

The event took place at Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront. Pier 21, now a museum devoted to the history of immigration in Canada, was the terminal where immigrants arriving by sea landed between 1928 and 1971.

  • the Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing was handed to the cooperative legal blog Slaw.ca. Simon Fodden, the founder, accepted the award. It was particularly poignant, as Fodden explained that, some 60 years earlier, he had passed through the very building where we were all sitting when he arrived as an immigrant to Canada
  • the research grant for 2009 was awarded to Mary Hemmings (University of Calgary) for her project "Legal Visual Semiotics: Eighteenth Century Satirical Prints as Primary Sources." This grant will allow Mary to travel to England to conduct research for an upcoming book chapter in Treatise on Legal Visual Semiotics
  • the Denis Marshall Memorial Award For Excellence in Law Librarianship went to Peta Bates of the Law Society of Saskatchewan

There are many other grants and awards distributed by CALL.
