TaxProf Blog Named Best Law Professor Blog of 2012

I am delighted that TaxProf Blog has been named the Best Law Professor Blog by Dennis Kennedy in his ninth annual Best of Law-related Blogging Awards (the “Blawggies”):

Best Law Professor Blog – Paul Caron’s The TaxProf Blog

The Blawggies have always had a spot for the best law professor blog. In part, it’s my little effort to bridge the great divide between practicing lawyers and law professors.

I have a repeat winner here and it’s a great blog to read as we approach the fiscal cliff. As I said last year, the test of a great blog is how it keeps me returning to it time after time because of its great posts when it’s outside my subject matter. The topic here is U.S. tax, but Paul ventures into the real word with regular, thoughtful posts. It’s a blog with an academic focus and a a real world impact. My greatest compliment: reading this blog makes me want to take a class from Paul. I hope he’s thinking about doing some online courses.

I am also pleased that our sister Legal Skills Prof Blog was the runner up:

Yes, I know, I’m involved in this one, but I don’t post very often, so I can pretend to be objective. This blog has great coverage of the current debate about what needs to be done with the current approach to legal education and what law schools are doing in the area of skills education.

Here we go again with another Hollywood-styled giving awards to each other.... Oh, wait. Paul won? Well deserved, Paul! Congratulations! And, it says a lot about your overall content to think that you won despite posting articles from Bruce Bartlett and David Cay Johnston.

Congratulations. I find this blog so stimulating a mix of law and economics without distraction from nontechnical public policy (well,except for the law school reform stuff) that I've been looking to see if I can find anything similar in content. Bainbridge and Volokh are the closest I've come, but both of those are too non-technical.
