The Burton Awards for Excellence in Legal Writing is, without a doubt, the single most glamorous evening for legal writing. That's been true for years, and next year's award ceremony promises to continue that trend. It will be held at 4:45 p.m. on Monday, June 15, 2015 in the Great Hall of the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress. Awards will be given for public interest, public service, "Legends in Law," distinguished legal writing awards, outstanding journalist in law, and an award for "Outstanding Contributions to Legal Writing Education." Entertainment will be provided that evening by Kristin Chenoweth, the Emmy and Tony Award winning superstar. It's a black tie event and tickets can be pricey, but the value of the evening makes it all worthwhile.
