Stephen Albainy-Jenei at Patent Baristas hosts his fifth carnival of law bloggers, Blawg Review #313, riffing off Keb Mo's Keep It Simple. It's a laid-back Blawg Review; thoroughly enjoyable.
Today is also Emancipation Day. The Slavery Abolition Act 1833 ended slavery in the British Empire, August 1, 1834, which is remembered in the colonies with various holidays and celebrations, like Caribana Caribbean Carnival in Toronto. From the first colony to abolish slavery, Toronto-based Omar Ha-Redeye earned Blawg Review of the Year kudos for Blawg Review #278 on the International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. Worth another read.
