LYNDHURST, N.J., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Scarinci Hollenbeck has been named a winner of the 2013 New Media Award's Web Awards Competition. Scarinci Hollenbeck earned the Best in Industry award for its Constitutional Law Reporter. This pro bono website, which was officially launched in October 2012, is an educational tool and a legal resource for students, law schools, and academics who are interested in the United States Constitution, in landmark Constitutional cases, and in the legal analyses of historical and current topics in Constitutional law.
"I have been privileged to be involved in Constitutional issues on behalf of my clients since the beginning of my career as a lawyer," said Donald Scarinci, Managing Partner of Scarinci Hollenbeck and Editor of the Constitutional Law Reporter. "My passion for Constitutional law deepened further when I researched and wrote the Biography of David Brearley, a signer of the Constitution from the State of New Jersey and the first Federal District Court Judge from this state. I hope this website generates the same enthusiasm in others that I have for the subject."
The website is both educational and informative. Its interactive United States Constitution is unlike anything else on the web. The full text of the Constitution is placed alongside of a plain language translation written by Cathy Travis and reprinted with permission. The creative use of hyperlinks allows the reader to peel back the document in order to reveal its complexities in an easy and rewarding way.
The website includes a blog that is updated once a week with articles pertaining to case law or current events. There is also an external news feed that links to the very best articles from law professors, scholars, and news writers, making the site a valuable destination for people who want to stay current and informed.
In addition to the news feed and the annotated Constitution, the website features an easy-to-navigate listing of U.S. Supreme Court cases, which includes the formal court ruling, the author of the majority opinion, and a separate analysis of the case. The latter provides readers with a succinct overview of the proceedings, as well as the key points of the case and the potential implications of the ruling.
In addition, the website features short biographies of the current Supreme Court Justices as well as those of all former Chief Justices dating back to the very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, who was appointed in 1789.
Scarinci Hollenbeck has dedicated its website and various blogs to keeping viewers informed about pressing legal issues and educating them on the implications of landmark rulings. The law firm's devotion to these goals has been evidenced by previous awards it has earned from the prestigious New Media Institute. In 2012, the Institute extended to Scarinci Hollenbeck the "Standard of Excellence" award for its overall main website design, interactive structure, and the creative use of social media platforms to generate a sizable readership.
