2018 National Law Review Thought Leadership Awards

2018 NLR Thought Leadership Award Winner

The 2018 “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards” recognize 65 exceptional authors and legal organizations for their reporting of complex legislative and litigation news, as well as their strategic insight and overall legal industry knowledge.

The recipients were selected by the National Law Review’s editors from a pool of over 100,000 legal news and analysis articles.

This is the first year the National Law Review formally recognized the unique talents of less than 1% of the authors and organizations who contribute to the NLR’s daily legal news service.

We recognized authors in 20 categories ranging from Bankruptcy to Tribal Law. Some authors and firms offer NLR readers both consistent insightful legal analysis, and author content that gets the attention of both readers and other publications.

We looked for contributors who exhibited particular expertise in a legal area and helped clarify the issues for corporate counsel, business professionals, and other legal consumers.

The selected authors and organizations truly are the ‘Go-To Thought Leaders’ in their fields and have helped the to NLR grow to one of the nation’s highest-volume business-law websites.

On September 28, 2017, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Ombudsman outlined protocols for new USCIS in-person interviews required for employment-based applicants effective October 1, 2017. Interviews will be scheduled by field offices for every applicant who has filed an I-485 after March 6, 2017 and notices will be sent to both the applicant and the representing attorney. If additional evidence is needed, USCIS will request prior to the interview. At the interview, officers will review I-485 questions, eligibility criteria, work experience, and educational experience. Additionally, officers will confirm bona fide relationships of family members. USCIS will consider interview waivers for applicants under the age of fourteen.
