Each year, the Thomas F. Blackwell Memorial Award is given to a person who has made outstanding contributions to the field of legal writing. The award is named in memory of Thomas Blackwell, a professor at Appalachian School of Law who was killed by a disturbed student.
The Blackwell Award Committee has just announced that this year's winner of the Blackwell Award is Lou Sirico of Villanova. The award will be made in January at the AALS meeting.
