Congratulations to Aaron Twerski (Brooklyn) for winning the Robert C. McKay Award. The award is given by the ABA's Torts and Insurance Practice Section to an academic for his or her "commitment to the advancement of justice, scholarship and the legal profession demonstrated by outstanding contributions to the fields of tort and insurance law." Professor Twerski's remarks upon receiving the award, generally critical of the state of legal scholarship for being overly theoretical and irrelevant, are here [PDF]. The remarks inspired this Prawfs post by Professor Michael O'Hear (Marquette).
