from the Legal Writing Institute's listserv, posted by Terri LeClercq:
Chicago-Kent's Dean Hal Krent announces its first-ever endowed chair--honoring RALPH BRILL.
Ralph has taught at C-K for more than 40 years (and served as dean too). But mostly, he is responsible for their legal writing program. According to the dean, "Ralph has taught torts to generations of Chicago-Kent students and was the primary architect behind our innovative legal writing program."
The 9-member alumni committee that chose Ralph adds, "We are pleased to lead the campaign for the Ralph Brill Chair. We were all influenced by Ralph's teaching and leadership. He has reached out to so many of us in so many different ways ... We invite all alumni and friends to join us in this effort [to build a $1.5 million endowment]."
What super news for the legal writing community, and what a wonderful tribute to Ralph Brill!
