Burton awards celebration

Mary ss 2-1The Burton Awards for legal writing were presented at an elegant dinner at the Library of Congress on Monday night, June 3. Event sponsor William Burton began the program by calling for more respect for those in our profession. Justice Sonia Sotomayor and legal writing pioneer Mary Lawrence then received awards, and the evening ended with a concert by Vanessa Williams.  Professor Karin Mika, who attended the event, writes that Bill Burton is "a true friend" of the legal writing profession.
