Readers, I don’t ask for much. Once a year, though, I do ask for your nomination for the ABA Blawg 100, a list of the 100 best legal blogs. Since this is Letters Blogatory’s second year of existence, this is the second time I’ve asked. I didn’t make the cut last year, but hope springs eternal! I’ve tried to improve Letters Blogatory in various ways this year, both visible and invisible to readers, and so your vote of confidence would mean a lot to me. Here are some of the things I’ve done to make Letters Blogatory as timely and interesting as it can be:

  • Creation of the Letters Blogatory IJA Brigade, a group of correspondents who bring us the news from around the world. So far we have had contributions from Antonin Pribetić in Canada and Rafael Salomão Romano in Brazil, with more on the way.
  • Sustained coverage of two really interesting cases: the the Chevron/Ecuador case; and the the Belfast Project case. I don’t think you can find more in-depth coverage of these cases anywhere on the web.
  • A really interesting symposium on the intersection between forum non conveniens and recognition of foreign judgments, featuring leading scholars in the field.
  • And last, I keep bringing you the case of the day, nearly every business day. Phew! That’s a lot of work!

A nomination from you would be a vote for more coverage of international judicial assistance. So please vote at this page!
