Super Lawyers Magazine is an annual publication of Key Professional Media, Inc. The magazine lists lawyers practicing in a given state or region as "SuperLawyers." Super Lawyers Magazine is distributed to lawyers, certain corporations and law schools, and lists of Super Lawyers appear in selected newspapers and magazines. Super Lawyers Magazine selects candidates using a multi-step process. Candidates are first identified by conducting a survey of lawyers, interviewing lawyers and law firms and reviewing periodicals, trade journals and on-line sources. Candidates' background, experience, and achievements are then examined by the magazine's research staff. Lawyers deemed by the magazine to be leaders in their practice areas are then invited to form panels that review, evaluate and score Super Lawyers candidates. The magazine's research staff then selects a final list, ensuring that lawyers from differing firm sizes are included. Only 5% of a state's lawyers are selected as "Super Lawyers".
