Barnicle, who can also been seen regularly on NBC's "Today Show," has written more than 4,000 columns collectively for the Boston Herald, New York Daily News, and The Boston Globe, where he rose to prominence with his biting, satirical, and at times, heart-wrenching columns that closely followed the triumphs, travails and ambitions of Boston's working and middle classes. He has also written articles and commentary for Time magazine, Newsweek.com, The Huffington Post, ESPN the Magazine and Esquire, among others.
The Bar Association will also present the Justice Sonia Sotomayor Diversity Award at the program. The award publicly acknowledges, recognizes and honors an individual or entity that has demonstrated a strong commitment, and has made a substantial contribution, to diversity and promoting full and equal participation and inclusion in the legal profession.
Also at the event, Immediate-Past Chancellor Rudolph Garcia will be presented with a gold box, an exact replica of the one presented to Andrew Hamilton for his defense of John Peter Zenger in 1735. The gold box is presented annually to the immediate-past Chancellor and is inscribed with the message "acquired not by money, but by character."
The inaugural Justinian Society Comisky-DiBona Award will be presented to retired Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Edward J. Bradley at the event.
Barnicle's award-winning documentaries include "Armed and Dangerous," which examined the proliferation of guns in the U.S., and "Justice on Trial," an expose on the Massachusetts judicial system.
