Blawg Review is the blog carnival for everyone interested in law. A peer-reviewed blog carnival, the host of each Blawg Review decides which of the submissions and recommendations are suitable for inclusion in the presentation. For an example, please read my Blawg Review #147 during which Charlie Longbrief got so tired riding across Iowa that he apparently couldn’t post the rest of the year.

It’s time for the Blawg Review of the Year Nominations. Those who have ever hosted blawg review or are scheduled to host a blawg review are entitled to vote. You cannot vote for your own. There were many worthy contenders this year.  Here are my picks:

Blawg Review #162 China Law Blog – World peace, basketball and Raquel Welch.  What else do you need?

Blawg Review #172Ohio Employer’s Law Blog – In a year in which Iowans Shawn Johnson and LoLo Jones were the talk of the Olympics, how could I not pick this Olympic themed Blawg Review?

Blawg Review #173Chicago IP Litigation Blog – Michael Phelps and Blawg Review. Is there any question I am a sports fan?

Blawg Review #189Infamy or Praise – Another masterful performance by the perennial winner of the Blawg Review of the Year.
