Scribes Luncheon During the ABA Meeting in San Francisco

ABA Scribes--The American Society of Legal Writers--will hold its annual luncheon during the American Bar Association Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

This year's speaker will be Professor Pamela S. Karlan, founder of the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Stanford University School of Law. 

Picture 169 Scribes will also recognize Professor Emeritus Richard C. Wydick, author of the million-copy best seller, Plain English for Lawyers (I'm guessing on that number of book sales but I don't think I'm far off!).  If I read the invitation correctly, he'll be receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from Scribes.  (When Justice Scalia received the same award from Scribes in New York, he urged Scribes to pick a new name for that award.)  (Here is a picture from that Scribes luncheon in New York.) 

Other presentations will include the Scribes Book Award and the Brief-Writing Award.  The event will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2010, from noon to 2:00 p.m. at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco (at 222 Mason Street, in the Carmel II Room on the third floor).  Tickets are $50 per Scribes member or $90 for a Scribes member and guest.  Nonmembers pay $60.  And just why is it that you aren't a member?

Any idea which school won the brief writing award for students? Which schools finished second and third? Who won it last year?

Just curious. ;)

Just a note that I will be there to see John Temple receive the Scribes Book Award for The Last Lawyer! Very excited about it.
