Tooting our own horn


We are very proud of the journalism we do here at Canadian Lawyer and once again I am happy to announce that at last night's KRW Awards, which recognize the best in the Canadian business press, that our magazine took home a gold and two silver awards.

KRW 2011The gold award was in the best marketing/merchandising article and was won by Montreal laywer Ava Chisling who freelance authored the our May 2010 cover story “How am I doing?” The story looked at the steps Canadian law firms, both small and large, are taking towards integrating client feedback into their firms' culture.

The silver awards came for staff writer Robert Todd’s “Legal aid: a system in peril,” a critical look at the state of legal aid across this country in the October 2010 issue. That same issue was honoured in the best cover category with art direction by Bill Hunter and illustration by Darren Booth.

Canadian Lawyer also received honourable mentions for the June 2010 Money Issue cover; for our former Back Page columnist Ezra Levant in the best regularly featured column or department category; in the best feature category for Bruce Livesey’s article “When Temptation Bites” and Todd’s “Greener pastures”; artist Anthony Tremmaglia got a nod for his Canadian Lawyer InHouse October 2010 cover illustration; and Hunter along with photographers Roth & Ramberg for the opening spread of the article “A Major undertaking.”

I look forward to continuing our history of excellence with a great team of staff and freelance contributors who work hard every day to bring great content to our readers. Please join me in congratulating our dedicated team.
