An Award for Professional Excellence was given to Lawline for Thicke v. Gaye: Will the Jury's Decision Have a Chilling Impact on Creativity? in the Program Awards category. The Award for Professional Excellence is the top prize; only one is awarded in each category of prizes.

ACLEA members are professionals in the fields of continuing legal education and legal publishing. Its annual ACLEA's Best Awards are highly competitive and winning projects represent the highest level of achievement for the staff and volunteers involved.

The winning course explored a Los Angeles jury's decision in Thicke v. Gaye, a case in which the estate of Marvin Gaye alleged that Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" infringed on Gaye's "Got To Give It Up." In the program, music law attorney Steven Gordon and copyright law scholar Robert Clarida debate the case and examine some of the questions it raises about the methods used to assess copyright infringement, the precedent set by the decision, and its possible impact on artists' creativity.

ACLEA formally presented the award to Lawline at the Annual Meeting of ACLEA in Seattle, WA on August 2, 2016. "We are thrilled to receive this honor," said Sigalle Barness, Vice President of Content. "Great content is one of our brand promises to our customers, so it's exciting that ACLEA has recognized Lawline for staying true to that promise."
