Scribes, the American Society of Legal Writers, is the oldest professional legal writing organization in the United States.
The Scribes annual luncheon takes place this year on Friday, August 3rd, from noon to 2:00 p.m., at the Union League Club of Chicago (65 W. Jackson Boulevard). The luncheon is held during the annual meeting of the American Bar Association (but you do not need to be attending the ABA meeting in order to attend the Scribes luncheon).
The main speaker is Seventh Circuit Justice Diane Wood. There will be a special Lifetime-Achievement Award given to U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. And Scribes' book award and brief-writing award will also be presented. So it's going to be a wonderful celebration of strong legal writers.
- $50 for Scribes members
- $90 for a Scribes member and a guest
- $60 for non-members
- IF YOUR LAW SCHOOL IS AN INSTITUTIONAL MEMBER OF SCRIBES you get two free tickets to the luncheon. (The invitation may still be on your Dean's desk!)
To attend the luncheon, send a message to Rebecca McAlpine at Thomas Cooley Law School. Her email is mcalpinb [at] cooley.edu and her telephone number is 417-371-5140, extension 4402. Please RSVP by July 23rd.
