2006 Golden Pen Award

ClickGolden_pen on the photo, and you'll see Professor Terri Seligmann (U. Arkansas - Fayetteville), President of the Legal Writing Institute; author Joseph M. Williams, recipient of the 2006 LWI Golden Pen Award; and Professor George Gopen (Duke), presenter of the award.  Joe Williams is well-known among legal writing professors for his book Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity & Grace (University of Chicago Press).  In this picture he is holding the plaque he received at the award reception on January 6th, and also a small box, which does indeed contain an actual golden pen.  With this annual award, the Legal Writing Institute recognizes an individual who has done an outstanding job wielding the figurative golden pen and advancing the cause of clear legal writing.
