CALL/ACBD Announces Short-list of Nominees for Legal Publishing Award

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL/ACBD)  has just announced a short-list of nominees for the 2022 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing. The award honours Hugh Lawford (1913-2009), Professor of Law at Queen’s University and the founder of Quicklaw.

The award is given to a publisher (whether for-profit or not-for profit, corporate or non-corporate) that has demonstrated excellence by publishing a work, series, website, or electronic product that makes a significant contribution to legal research and scholarship.

This year’s nominees are:

CanLII for Civil Procedure and Practice in Ontario edited by Noel Semple.

“A comprehensive and free guide sophisticated enough for specialist litigators, but also straightforward and understandable for law office staff, self-represented litigants, and the general public.”

LexisNexis for The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Canadian Law by Kevin P. McGuinness

“The definitions provided in this text are taken predominantly from both Canadian jurisprudence and statutes and also include important terms from pertinent related fields such as economics, sociology, political science, forensic medicine, science and engineering, business and accounting, and many others.”

Emond for Modern Criminal Evidence, Brian H. Greenspan and Vincenzo Rondinelli, General Editors.

“A truly practical and comprehensive guide to criminal evidence law in Canada that guides readers through evidentiary issues in all components of criminal law, providing insight from Crown, defence, and judicial perspectives.”LexisNexis for The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Canadian Law by Kevin P. McGuinness.

The Manitoba Law Library has print copies of both Modern Criminal Evidence and The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Canadian Law

Our members also have access to Modern Criminal Evidence through our subscription to Emond’s Criminal Law series which can be accessed behind the Law Society Member Portal

We would love to see a Manitoba guide to civil litigation and procedure published in collaboration with CanLII. On our wish list! 

Winners will be announced at this year’s CALL/ACBD virtual conference May 31 – June 3, 2022

Congratulations and good luck to all of the nominees!
