Scribes -- the American Society of Legal Writers -- is the oldest professional legal writing organization in the United States.
The Scribes annual luncheon takes place 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 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 lunch speaker is Seventh Circuit Justice Diane Wood. Scribes' book award and brief-writing award will also be presented. And Scribes is bringing back a favored tradition -- the legal writing book raffle prizes! You don't want to miss this. You'll also have a chance to pick up the oh-so-fabulous Supreme Court issue of the Scribes Journal, which is filled with fantastic quotes and tips on legal writing.
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.
