The National Law Journal Announces Results from Inaugural “Best of The National Law Journal” Readers Rankings

WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 28, 2012 – ALM’s The National Law Journal today announced “The Best of The National Law Journal,” the first-ever reader’s choice rankings of the nation’s top legal vendors and law schools.

More than 5,000 readers took the survey this spring, voting in 65 different categories for who they believe are providing the best services, products or education to U.S. law firms.

For each category, the winners were ranked by pure popularity among rival peers – the choice with the most votes won. The results were compiled by the sales and marketing staff of The National Law Journal. The editorial staff of the newspaper was not involved in the contest.

“This program was designed to let our readers tell us which vendors and law schools are the best at what they do,” said Kenneth Gary, associate publisher of The National Law Journal & Legal Times. “Whether it was a crucial service or a time-saving product, there was a category for readers to cast their votes on all important aspects to the practice of law, from data technology products and banking services to law firm marketing and legal research.”

Some of the winners in select categories included:

“Law Firm PR”: Hellerman Baretz Communications
“National Legal Recruiter”: Robert Half
“Alternative Dispute Resolution Provider”: JAMS
“Legal Research Vendor”: Westlaw
“Jury Consultant”: TrialGraphix
“Expert Witness Provider”: IMS ExpertServices
“Claims Administrator”: KCC
