Each year the American Bar Association Journal compiles a list of the 100 best legal blogs, and invites blog readers to use the form at this link:

to tell us about a blawg—not your own—that you read regularly and think other lawyers should know about. Or if you don’t have particular blawgs in mind but think blawgs from certain practice areas should be represented in the Blawg 100, you can use this form to let us know which ones. If there is more than one blawg you want to support, feel free to send us additional amici through the form. We may include some of the best comments in our Blawg 100 coverage. But keep your remarks pithy—you have a 500-character limit. Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than Sept. 7, 2012.

CLR Forum is a relatively new blog — we just passed our 1 year anniversary on August 11 (insert tooting horn noise).  But in that year we’ve worked to bring — and greatly enjoyed bringing — our readers a range of scholarly, doctrinal, and cultural stories about law and religion issues in the United States and abroad.  Our readership has grown from a few dozen folks to an average of a few hundred per day, for which we are very grateful.  We invite any readers who think our blog belongs in the top 100, or who have a different favorite legal blog, to participate in the ABA’s selection process.

Thanks for reading, and here’s to the beginning of a new year.
