Just in time for the impending new year, Scribes - The American Society of Legal Writers has announced activation of its redesigned website.
Annually, Scribes presents two awards to recognize high-quality legal writing by law students: the Law-Review Award, which honors the best student-written article in a law review or journal, and the Brief-Writing Award , which honors the best student-written brief. Note that for this year's Law-Review Award competition, submissions are due by January 14, 2011. UPDATE FROM SCRIBES: Submissions to the Law-Review competition are due by January 21, 2011.
The National Order of Scribes also recognizes high-quality legal writing by law students. Any law school that's a current institutional member of Scribes may nominate up to five graduating law students who excel in legal writingfor induction into the National Order of Scribes .
