Nominations Open for 8th Justicia Awards

The Justicia Awards recognize outstanding broadcast and print stories that foster public awareness and understanding of any aspect of the Canadian justice system, or the roles played by institutions and participants in the legal system.

The nomination period for the 8th annual Awards is now open. The deadline is June 15, 2007 for entries covering stories that were published or broadcast between May 16, 2006 and May 15th 2007.

The awards will be presented at the annual meeting of the Canadian Bar Association in Calgary on August 11.

They are sponsored by the Canadian Bar Association and the Department of Justice Canada.

Earlier Library Boy post on the subject:
  • 7th Annual Justicia Awards for Legal Reporting (August 14, 2006): "Société Radio-Canada’s TV show Enjeux and the Vancouver Sun's Peter McKnight are this year's recipients of the Justicia Awards for Legal Reporting (...) Enjeux won an Award for its March 2006 program 'Tribunal des Toxicomanes' that dealt with Vancouver's groundbreaking Drug Treatment Court. McKnight won his Award in the print category for his column that showed how hard it is to come up with any clear definition of what 'judicial activism' really is, if it even exists at all."
