Congratulations to George Gopen!
Congratulations to George Gopen, who is the 2011 recipient of the Legal Writing Institute’s Golden Pen Award. I have long regarded George as my legal writing mentor. Years ago, I attended George’s 12 hour program at Duke. I discovered an approach to writing that went way beyond what the conventional sources had taught me. He was on the cutting edge. My students and I have been the beneficiaries of his hard work.
Here is a lengthy 2007 interview with George posted on Idealawg. It offers a delightful autobiography and an outline of his writing philosophy.
Thanks for linking to the interview. Did you see the sweet photos of he wedding I posted here:
