ABA periodical winners in other APEX categories were the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section’s The Brief, the Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division’s GPSolo Magazine and the International Law Section’s newsletter, International Law News.
Experience’s elder law series was entered in the magazine series category. The elder law series was recognized for its “graphic design, editorial content and ability to achieve overall communications excellence.” The magazine’s four themed issues were “Introduction to Elder Law,” “Hope, Change and Health Care,” “Health Care, Continued …” and “Financial and Life Planning.”
“The elder law series is particularly important for the Senior Lawyers Division because it inaugurates the division’s intensified focus on elder law,” said Lisa V. Comforty, managing editor of periodicals for ABA Publishing.
Outgoing Senior Lawyers Division Chair Judge Ed Schoenbaum congratulated Issues Editor Walter T. Burke, outgoing chair of the division’s Elder Law Committee, on the award.
