Here's some news from John Edwards, Associate Dean for Information Resources and Technology and Professor of Law at Drake University Law School:
Drake has been selected as a 2008 recipient of the American Bar Association's Gambrell Professionalism Award. The news release is at http://www.law.drake.edu/newsEvents/details.aspx?eventID=gambrellAward .
Melissa Weresh played a key role in Drake receiving the award and the release notes one judge's comments: [T]he writing curriculum for first-year students utilizes "Ethical and Professional Considerations in Legal Writing," a recent book by Drake law professor Melissa Weresh. This "creative and outstanding text," he wrote, "has helped produce law graduates who understand that ethics and professionalism are not just separate subjects in law school, but the very core and the true heart and soul of our legal profession."
Congratulations to Drake and to Mel Weresh!
