The alumni magazine of Boston College Law School, BC Law Magazine, has won a 2022 CASE Circle of Excellence Award, a highly esteemed recognition, for its Summer 2020 and Winter 2021 editions.
CASE, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and a global nonprofit seeking to equip educational communities with the resources to succeed and inspire, bestowed the magazine with a Bronze Award for the “Alumni/General Interest: Any Institution Type (Targeted)” category.
“Advancement has never been more important to support and strengthen education.These 2022 Circle of Excellence recipients—from institutions and teams of all sizes and shapes, from regions across the world—showcase how advancement empowers teaching and learning, ignites institutional progress, and helps communities thrive,” states Sue Cunningham, CEO and president of CASE.
This year, CASE received a record number of entries (more than 4,500) from members across twenty-eight countries and a large team of judges was recruited to find the publications that met the above criteria and best champion their institutions.
About BC Law Magazine, which is published twice a year and circulates to 19,000 readers, the judges’ panel found that, “A lot of creative effort went into it to draw the readers’ attention. It has engaging, thought-provoking content.”
This accomplishment is particularly meaningful since the magazine’s sole editor had to discern what the magazine would say about the pandemic in the Summer 2020 issue, then assembled a sixteen-page “Vision Project” with the thoughts of thirty-eight faculty members on Covid-19’s impact on their varied legal fields. Several other features offered a compelling window into the classroom experiences and people who make BC Law remarkable.
“The vision project was an ambitious undertaking that provided a variety of experts’ perspectives on pressing topics,” remarked the judges.
This award recognizes BC Law Magazine’s mission to do just that with every issue and story—to inform and inspire.
Watch for the next issue, due out in July.
