And the winner of the first ever Public Law Advocacy Blog contest is ...

... DOGMOM. As picked out randomly from qualifying entries by Natalie, my most charming and incorruptible Director of Client Relations. Rest assured, the highest standards of lottery entry security were adhered to.

Surely all of my faithful followers remember my announcement a wee bit of time ago (okay, it was quite a while ago) of a contest. Interestingly enough, the contest announcement post has proved to be my fourth most popular post ever in terms of page views, shockingly enough beating out such catchy posts as "Seven Reasons Why I Love Tax Law" (which is nonetheless ranked at number 6 in all time post popularity parade).

The lucky contest winner will be receiving by way of Canada Post: No Distant Millennium - The International Law of Human Rights, written by John Humphrey (one of the Universal Declaration of Human Right's drafters and my prof at McGill) and published by UNESCO; The Charter of Rights and Freedoms - A Guide for Canadians (a surprisingly good booklet I acquired during one of my many government gigs); and Learning Canadian Criminal Procedure, by profs. Ron Delisle and Don Stuart at Queen's, two of the leading academics in the Canadian criminal law world.

For those extremely disappointed contestants, who were betting on winning so that they would have something to fascinating to read on the beach during a tropical vacation this winter, I suppose you can always fall back on some John Grisham.  

Thanks to all who entered, and keep those comments coming.

Also, for those who haven't yet liked my Facebook page or signed up to my twitter feed @gsclawfirm (, I invite you to do so, where you will experience a little less law (though certainly there's still a strong legal theme), and a little more of my day to day law firm life in the countryside of Canada.

Happy holidays to all my readers.
