The magazine is a culture and lifestyle publication covering Philadelphia’s Main Line and its western suburbs. For 2010, it named Widener Law graduates tops in nine legal specialties.

The magazine accepted nominations in 15 practice areas and hundreds of votes were cast to determine who would be named the best.
