Our goal at ALM Media is to serve the entire legal community and, as part of that, we’re adding new wrinkles to our annual Professional Excellence Awards to make sure we highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the legal communities that our publications serve.

We have categories in select regions, as well as honoring Litigation Departments of the Year in those regions for firms of all sizes.

Please note that this list only covers U.S. editorial awards for ALM’s legal publications.  It does not include research surveys, regulated markets publications, or business-side awards or international awards.

For research surveys (AmLaw 200, NLJ 500, Pro Bono Scorecard, etc.), please contact Carole Clark at [email protected]You can also sign up for research survey notifications here.

We are no longer running Trailblazers or the Watchlist. Any questions regarding these two contests should go to Maria Stojanovic at [email protected].

For International ALM awards, please visit the ALM Events page and click “Awards Events” for a full list.
