The AALS Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research has announced that Jan Levine of Duquesne University School of Law is the recipient of this year’s Section Award. Jan has been a tireless supporter of and advocate for the legal writing field. He has also advocated on behalf of and assisted many individual legal writing faculty members in gaining better salaries and status, both at schools where he has been a teacher and director and at other schools across the nation.
In selecting Jan as this year’s Award recipient, both the Section Award Nominating Committee and the Section Executive Committee considered the fact that Jan is also this year’s Blackwell Award winner, but concluded that the criteria for the awards are different and that others have received both the Section Award and the Blackwell Award, though not necessarily both in the same year. The Section will present its award to Jan at the Section lunch on Friday, January 3, 2014.
