CHEYENNE – The National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) on October 14, 2021, presented the Wyoming State Bar a 2021 Luminary Award for Excellence in Regular Publications for the Wyoming Lawyer magazine, the Bar’s flagship publication. The winning entry was the February 2021 issue featuring “Where the Rule of Law Stands and How to Reclaim It.” This is the second Luminary Award the magazine has earned. The first was awarded in 2011.

Each year, the NABE Luminary Awards program recognizes excellence in bar association communications and marketing by honoring the outstanding communications projects of the last two years.“The Wyoming Lawyer is the official publication of the Wyoming State Bar, but it is so much more,” offers Michael Shickich, Chair of the Wyoming Lawyer Editorial Committee. “For more than a decade, the magazine has heralded praise from other bar associations throughout the country who marvel at what a quality publication the Wyoming State Bar puts out with resources that are certainly more limited than those of other bar associations.”

The Wyoming Lawyer magazine covers substantive legal issues, professional trends and feature profiles. The magazine is published six times a year by the Wyoming State Bar. Sharon Wilkinson, the Bar’s Executive Director, serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine.

The winning issue, “Where the Rule of Law Stands and How to Reclaim It,” features articles by and about some of Wyoming’s most esteemed jurists including former Governor Mike Sullivan who also served as U.S. Ambassador to Ireland from 1999 to 2001. Other authors include Hon. William F. Downes, a retired U.S. District Court judge; Hon. Nathaniel S. Hibben, a Circuit Court judge from Torrington; Hon. Jeffrey A. Donnell, a retired District Court judge from Laramie; Devon O’Connell, a Past President of the Wyoming State Bar and a Laramie lawyer; and Blake A. Klinkner, an Assistant Professor of Law at Washburn University School of Law and a former Chair of the Wyoming State Bar’s Young Lawyer Section. Featured in this issue were Hon. Alan B.
