Glass Ceiling Discrimination Blog chosen as a top legal blog by the American Bar Association (ABA) Journal

Editors of the ABA Journal have selected Glass Ceiling Discrimination Blog to the 2017 ABA Journal Web 100, as one of the 100 best digital media for a legal audience.

The Glass Ceiling Discrimination Blog, which is authored by Eric Bachman of Zuckerman Law, strives to give unique insights on issues related to glass ceiling/promotion discrimination, sexual harassment, and employment discrimination developments more broadly.

Editors have renamed the annual list the Web 100 to honor not only legal blogs, but also podcasts and social media. In addition, the magazine has added five more bloggers to its Blawg Hall of Fame—featuring the very best law blogs, known for their untiring ability to craft high-quality, engaging posts sometimes on a daily basis.

“Since 2007, the ABA Journal has helped shine a light on the stunning breadth of legal topics and voices to found in the legal blogosphere,” Editor and Publisher Molly McDonough said. “Journal editors have selected yet another stellar list of blogs, while recognizing the contributions of podcasts and social media. We hope you’ll find legal information sources in this list that are completely new to you.”

“It is an honor for Glass Ceiling Discrimination Blog to be recognized as one of the top 50 legal blogs and we certainly appreciate the ABA Journal’s support,” said Eric Bachman.
