Past News Releases


The National Law Review’s “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards” recognize 75 exceptional authors in 35 legal practice areas ranging from Art Law to Whistleblower Rights. Award recipients are selected from a pool of over 100,000 legal news articles published by the National Law Review (NLR) in 2019.

According to Jennifer Schaller, the NLR's Managing Director: “The National Law Review’s online edition was developed by and for in-house attorneys, so we wanted to recognize thought leaders who identify and sort through the torrent of daily legal news and highlight the developments that require attention, as corporate attorneys tend to be generalists. We also looked for practical guidance that provides a blueprint for action.”    Per Eilene Spear, the NLR’s Operations Manager “We looked for not only relevant and well thought-out legal news, we also considered which articles were reader favorites and that were quoted or cited by other publications and /or syndicated by other media.” With the high volume of content that the National Law Review publishes, the selected authors are truly the ‘Go-To Thought Leaders’ in their legal specialties.

This is the second year the NLR has formally recognized the unique talents of less than 1% of their authors.

Please join us in congratulating the National Law Review’s 2019 “Go-To Thought Leader” recipients:
