Call for Nominations: Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL / ACBD) has opened the nomination period for the 10th Annual Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.

The award was created:

"as a means of acknowledging the work that is done by publishers to provide the legal profession with high quality materials for use in understanding and researching the law".

"The award may be given for a wide variety of publishing endeavours - a specific book, series, service, or a particularly innovative publishing venture or body of work. All formats are eligible, including print, electronic and audio-visual. English and French-language publications will be considered. The intent is to recognize excellence in any form."
The deadline for nominations is January 14, 2009. Nominations, either in English or French, will be considered by the Award Committee in early 2009.

All nominations should include the name of the publisher, the title of the publication and the reason why it is worthy of consideration. In addition, the names of 2 additional CALL/ACBD members who will support the nomination need to be included.

Submissions should be sent to the Chair of the Selection Committee:

Johanne Blenkin
Executive Director
Courthouse Libraries BC
