In case you haven’t heard, JURIST has been nominated in New York for a prestigious Webby Award as best Law website of 2008!
We’re actually up for two prizes, one awarded by the Webby judges, and another, called the People’s Voice, awarded by popular online vote. Some of you may remember that JURIST actually won the Webby People’s Voice Award in 2006, beating Court TV and FindLaw in a close race.
This year JURIST and our dedicated band of law student staffers are up against some more heavyweight competition, including the website of the American Bar Association (ABA) Journal (the world’s largest circulation law magazine!) and the recruiting website for New York-based Shearman and Sterling, the world’s 17th largest law firm by revenue.
To win, we need your help. Here’s what you can do:
1. Go to http://pv.webbyawards.com/account/signup and register to vote;
2. Once you register, an activation code will be sent to your email (check to make sure it’s not misdirected to your “junk” folder);
3. Log on to http://pv.webbyawards.com/ and click on “Website: Vote now”;
4. Scroll down to “Society” and click on the “Law” category;
5. Vote for JURIST!
The process just takes a couple of minutes.
Once you’ve voted yourself, *please* spread the word to your colleagues, friends, students and family – anyone you think should know about JURIST and the public service we perform every day by bringing you comprehensive, serious legal news and commentary with a global perspective.
Voting ends this Thursday, May 1; Webby winners will be announced in New York May 6.
Thanks for your support!
