Last night the editors of the ABA Journal informed us that we have voted the top opinion blog of 2011 in the ABA Journal competition. It is our second such top award in the annual competition and it is an honor shared equally by all of our contributors and readers.
We have tried to create something special at this site for the discussion of legal and policy questions in a civil and substantive manner. The success of the blog is due entirely to you. I view posts as merely creating a foundation for broader discussion, much like cases in a law class. It is what you bring to the discussion that makes this blog unique. We will continue to improve the site and I am always interested in suggestions on how to improve the site further. The nice thing about this competition is that it introduces new people to the blog and I hope some of them will decide to stay and contribute to our discussions. More importantly, I needed something to overcome the performance of the Bears this season!
Congratulations to the other winners and competitors in this year’s competition. This competition often allows us to explore the ever widening array of legal blogs and I encourage you to check out some of the other sites among the top 100 blogs.
Thanks again everyone for pushing so hard to help improve the blog and to secure this top spot.
