Every year, the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) hands out the Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.

It honours a publisher that has demonstrated excellence by publishing a work, series, website or e-product that makes a significant contribution to legal research and scholarship.

The nominees this year are:

  • The CanLII Manual to British Columbia Civil Litigation, by Brent Anderson et al, John Fiddick and Cameron Wardell (eds.), a volunteer-written, open access publication that supports both legal professionals and self-represented litigants with their civil justice research.
  • Sentencing, 10th edition, by Clayton C. Ruby (LexisNexis, Canada). This book outlines all of the significant facets of sentencing principles and procedure and provides the reader with a comprehensive range of sentencing for various offences.
  • Laws of the Constitution: Consolidated, by Donald Bur (University of Alberta Press). This consolidation gathers all of the historical and contemporary constitutional documents currently in force at publication pertaining to Canada, its provinces, and its territories, and organizes them thematically and topically.
  • vLex Justis, an advanced legal research platform that covers legal materials from over 100 countries.
The winner will be announced at the 2021 CALL Virtual Conference Awards Ceremony on Friday, May 28 at 1:30 pm EST.
