Lawler Award winners: the journal's literary luminaries.

Since 1976 the JofA's editorial advisory board has selected the best article of each year to receive the John Lawler Award for editorial excellence. The award is named for John L. Lawler, a former JofA editor who also held a number of other distinguished positions in the Institute. A few of our authors also have been inducted into the John Lawler Award Hall of Fame, an honor reserved for writers whose articles have won two or more awards. The winning articles provide an interesting overview of the most important topics throughout the profession's recent history and highlight some of the timeless themes that continue to resonate with CPAs today.
