The Expert Institute’s 4th Annual Legal Blog Contest has officially drawn to a close. This year was our largest and most successful contest to date, with more than 800 of the most engaging and informative legal blogs throwing their hats into the ring.
Of the contest’s nine categories, the most active categories in 2018 were Niche & Specialty, Litigation, and Criminal Law. MedMal & Personal Injury proved to be the most competitive category, with only one vote separating 1st place from 2nd place.
This year, the contest’s three grand prize winners — who received the most overall votes across all categories — received one of our three top prizes: a 2018 MacBook, an Apple iPad, and an Apple Watch.*
The grand prize winners, as well as the winners in each individual category, have earned a permanent place in The Expert Institute’s Best Legal Blogs Hall of Fame, which can be found here.
