The California Bar Journal has won a Silver Six award from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) - the seventh award from a professional organization since the newspaper began publishing in January 1994.
The award of merit was presented to editor and general manager Dean Kinley at a ceremony held by the San Francisco chapter of the IABC.
The Silver Six award is the second time the IABC has honored the Bar Journal. The organization awarded its Silver Six Award of Excellence to Kinley in 1995.
The Bar Journal won a coveted Maggie Award for opinion writing in 1996. The Maggies are presented annually by the Western Publishing Association to outstanding magazines and newspapers in the western region of the U.S.
In addition, the newspaper was the recipient of the top Luminary Award from the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) in 1995 as well as honorable mentions in 1994 and 1997. NABE is the communications and public relations association of the American Bar Association.
The American Society of Business Press Editors (ASBPE) and the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) also have cited the Bar Journal in past years, both for its design and financial success.
