The Legal Writing Institute and the Association of Legal Writing Directors will present the Golden Pen Award honoring the National Association of Attorneys General and the Thomas F. Blackwell Memorial Award honoring Linda H. Edwards on Friday, January 9, 2009, 7:00 p.m. at the New Children’s Museum, 200 W. Island Ave., San Diego, California. The event also marks the launch of the 25th anniversary of the Legal Writing Institute.
The printed AALS Program lists the Golden Pen Award as being given out at the San Diego Marriott. THAT'S WRONG! It's at the Children's Museum, across the street from the Marriott. (The AALS program went to press before we finalized our venue at the museum.) IF YOU HAVE A PRINTED PROGRAM BOOK go to page 100 and write in "New Children's Museum, 200 W. Island Avenue" at 7:00 p.m. The ceremony itself shouldn't start before 7:30 p.m., so that you'll have time to go to the law school receptions that start at 6:30 p.m. on Friday. The supplemental progam you'll get when you register at AALS has the correct information on where the awards will be, and we'll also make some announcements at the section program and luncheon. The event is listed correctly in the on-line version of the AALS Program. Click here to see it.
