California Lawyer magazine has shut down, and will print its last issue in October 2015.
The magazine, which is published by the Los Angeles-based Daily Journal Corporation, has laid off all its staff.
Other Daily Journal publications such as the Los Angeles Daily Journal and San Francisco Daily Journal are not affected.
The move also potentially impacts the California Attorney of the Year (CLAY) awards, which are organized annually by California Lawyer.
Linda Hubbell, group publisher at the Daily Journal, said:
“We are working through details regarding many items, one being the CLAY awards. We will continue accepting nominations and will decide soon what we will do with the awards.”
The deadline for nominations is Monday, November 2 2015, although I would keep an eye on developments, as these awards may not be worth entering, given the situation.
