William A. Schnader Print Media Award for Excellence in Legal Writing
I just received notification that I have been awarded a Second Place award in the 2012 Schnader Print Media Awards Competition in the Weekly Newspapers category for my article, “Call Me from the Road” which appeared in the Pennsylvania Law Weekly.
The awards honor journalistic excellence in news or feature reporting on the legal system and its operations. This annual legal writing competition is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the national law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, LLP.
This is my seventh Schnader Print Media Award over the past six years.
I thank the Pennsylvania Law Weekly for allowing me to write for them and put my Villanova University English Degree, as well as my Dickinson School of Law legal writing and analysis skills, to good use.
Here is a LINK to the article "Call Me From the Road," which provides an update, as of July of 2011when the article was published, on the status of Pennsylvania law and civil litigation on legislative bans against cell phone use while driving.
