PHOENIX – Oct. 18, 2012 – The National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) on Oct. 12 presented the State Bar of Arizona a 2012 Luminary Award for Excellence in Regular Publications, large bar category, for Arizona Attorney magazine.

The State Bar was among 18 bar associations and their communications professionals to receive Luminary Awards during the NABE Communications Section conference in Denver.

"The Arizona Attorney magazine staff is driven to put out a remarkable product," said editor Tim Eigo. "I'm impressed every day by their commitment and talent, and I’m pleased that the magazine was recognized as the best in its field nationwide."

Arizona Attorney magazine covers substantive legal issues, professional trends and feature profiles. The magazine is published 11 times a year by the State Bar, and also won the Luminary Award in 2001 and 2009.
