Viewed by many as the "Godfather of Legal Writing," our friend and colleague Ralph Brill has been honored by the creation of an endowed chair in his honor at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago-Kent College of Law. (Back in February 2006, we broke the news of the initial plans to create and fund the chair.) Here's a link to the full press release, which provides more details on Ralph's career and his contribtions to legal writing and legal education. Congratulations, Ralph!
Ralph notes that there are no restrictions on the kind of law taught by the occupant of the chair, so it is possible that a Legal Writing teacher could be chosen for the position--and, says Ralph, "I truly hope so."
