Congratulations to Richard Neumann

Neumann_richard Neumann_richard_cartoon Neumann_richard_facebook Richard Neumann was named as the 2009 Recipient of the annual award presented by the Association of American Law Schools Section on Legal Reasoning, Research, and Writing.  We have often written about Richard on this blog (you can use the "search this blog" function in the column on the right to see what else we've written about him -- or about YOU for that matter).  In one post I wrote:

Richard K. Neumann (Professor of Law at Hofstra University School of Law in Hempstead, New York) is one of the nicest people in the entire world.  The planet is a better place because he's here.  Did you know that he did part of his education in Sweden?  It's true.  Did you know that HIS CHILDREN have read the Legal Writing Prof Blog?  Also true!!!

We share our enthusiastic congratulations to Richard for winning yet another legal writing award.  We thank him for his leadership, scholarship, and friendship.  I believe that the award will be presented to him in San Diego at the section's luncheon.

Years ago, before each school year started, the new legal writing professors in the New York City area used to gather at NYU for a teacher training workshop. After some helpful plenary sessions, the newbies were assigned to small groups meeting in classrooms, to try their hands at teaching a lesson plan, give each other support, and get advice from an experienced professor. When I was a newbie in 1990, the experienced professor for my small group was Richard Neumann. He was very encouraging to each of us, and I've been learning from him ever since!
