Best of NY Blawgs Contests

Bestof_ny_3



Sui Generis will be holding two contests over the next few weeks for Best New York Blawg and Best New York Blawger.

I'll be accepting nominations in the comments section of this post for each contest until midnight EST on Thursday, October 18th.  Shortly thereafter I'll post two polls, one for each contest.

Nominations for the Best New York Blawg contest (contest #1) should be limited to legal blogs that are updated at least once per week and regularly include posts devoted to New York legal issues. 

Nominations for the
Best New York Blawger contest (contest #2) should be limited to legal blogs with a New York-based author that are updated at least once per week.

I retain the right to exercise discretion in applying the above-mentioned guidelines to those blogs that are nominated. 

My intent is to include all blogs that are nominated, but  I will likely cap the number for each contest at 10 blogs, so the more nominations for a given blog, the better.

And, of course there will be prizes!

For the Best New York Blawg contest:

Chambermaid

First place receives a signed copy of attorney Sairo Rao's witty novel, Chambermaid, about a young attorney's eventful year as a clerk for a Federal Court Judge.


Partyfirst_3

Second place receives a signed copy of attorney Adam Freedman's newly released book, about the curious world of legalese, The Party of the First Part.



Rodrigo_2
Third place receives a a copy of the newly released novel about the misadventures of two former Camden cops-turned-lawyers, Death by Rodrigo.  It's written by a former federal prosecutor Ron Liebman.


For the
Best New York Blawger contest:


Billable_hour_2

First place receives choice of any single item sold by The Billable Hour (luxury watch line and sets excluded).  The Billable Hour, co-owned by husband and wife team Lisa Solomon and Mark Solomon, both of whom are attorneys, offers clever gifts and greeting cards for legal professionals.


Rodrigo

Second and third place winners receive a copy of the newly released novel about the misadventures of two former Camden cops-turned-lawyers, Death by Rodrigo.  It's written by a former federal prosecutor Ron Liebman.

So, get your nominations in for your favorite New York blawg and New York blawger.  Make sure to indicate whether your nomination is for Best Blawg (contest #1) or Best Blawger (contest #2). 

Remember, nominations will be accepted until midnight EST on October 18th!
