Schnader Print Media Awards for Excellence in Legal Writing

On Friday, I was notified by the Pennsylvania Bar Association that my article “To Friend or Not To Friend” has been selected as the First Place winner and that my article “Defense-Oriented Decisions Dominated 2010’s Biggest Non-Automotive Cases” has been selected as the Second Place winner in the Weekly Newspapers category of the 32nd annual William A. Schnader Print Media Awards.  Both articles appeared in The Pennsylvania Law Weekly over the past year.


This competition, honoring excellence in legal writing, is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the national law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, LLP.  This the fifth and sixth time articles of mine have been selected for Schnader Print Media Awards over the past five years.

There will be an awards ceremony on November 11th at the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association Annual Convention which will be held at the Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pennsylvania.

The article “To Friend or Not to Friend,” which analyzes the emerging common law in Pennsylvania on the discoverability of information on social media sites, can be viewed here:

I send thanks to Hal Cohen, the publisher, and Hank Grezlak, the Editor-in-Chief, of the Pennsylvania Law Weekly for allowing me the privilege of writing for the paper and putting my English Degree from Villanova University to good use.
