The American Bar Association has issued a call for submissions for its annual Blawg 100 list of the best legal blogs. Readers and legal are encouraged to nominate their blogs to the ABA list by Friday, August 9.

Blogs that have a strong chance of making the list will feature original topical content updates on a regular basis, sharp design and non-marketing material.

The ABA discourages nominations from the following:

• Bloggers who nominate their own blogs or nominate blogs to which they have previously contributed posts.
• Employees of law firms who nominate blogs written by their co-workers.
• Public relations professionals in the employ of lawyers or law firms who nominate their clients' blogs.
• Pairs of bloggers who have clearly entered into a quid pro quo agreement to nominate each other.

Readers may submit their favorite blogs to the ABA list through this link.
