Award Presented to National Law Review Go-To Thought Leaders

We're blown away by the quality of thought leadership submitted and thank our authors for helping the NLR to achieve unparalleled readership numbers

The National Law Review’s “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards” recognizes 87 exceptional legal authors in practice areas ranging from Aviation Law to Tribal Law. Award recipients are selected from a pool of over 14,000 legal news articles published by the National Law Review (NLR) in 2021. Award recipients contributed timely and well-thought-out legal news that were well read, regularly quoted or cited by other media. COVID related thought leadership remained popular in 2021, due to the uncertainty created by the ongoing pandemic.

The National Law Review publishes on average 350 new pieces of content per week and given the high volume of new content the National Law Review publishes, the selected authors and organizations are truly “Go-To Thought Leaders” in their area of expertise.

Jennifer Schaller, Managing Director of the National Law Review:
“The need for reliable and timely legal news continued in 2021, due to the unprecedented number of new laws, regulations and court cases related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Remote working became a way of life and face to face events are still rare, so our contributing authors found the National Law Review’s unparalleled reach kept them top of mind with clients and prospects alike.”

Rachel Popa, the National Law Review Editorial Manager:
"The caliber of content submitted is impressive and really resonates with the National Law Review's audience which continues to grow year after year. We're blown away by the quality of thought leadership submitted and thank our authors for helping the National Law Review achieve unparalleled readership numbers year after year."

This is the fourth year the NLR formally recognized the unique talents of its contributors. Less than 1% of the authors who publish with the National Law Review receive the “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards.” This year’s winners include more than 85 authors and firms in more than 30 legal practice areas.

Please join us in congratulating the National Law Review’s 2021 “Go-To Thought Leader” recipients:
