1. Best Overall Law-Related Blog
2. Best Overall Law Practice Management Blog
3. The Marty Schwimmer Best Practice-Specific Legal Blog
4. Best Legal Blog Category
5. Best Legal Blog Digest
6. Best Blawg About Legal Blawgging

Go here to see which law blogs Dennis Kennedy selected.
These categories are different from the annual Blawg Review Awards to be announced here on December 25th this year, when more of the best blawgs will be recognized for outstanding achievement in blogging.
So secretive is the selection process for the Blawg Review Awards that nobody knows what criteria are considered, or even who makes the selections. Last year's Blawg Review Awards 2005 were awarded by Themis, the Goddess of Justice and Law, but the mantle has been passed to a new host here for the Blawg Review Awards 2006.
