NAAG Wins Legal Writing Institute?s Golden Pen Award

We are pleased to announce that the Legal Writing Institute has voted to confer its 2009 Golden Pen Award on the National Association of Attorneys General. The Golden Pen Award recognizes those who make significant contributions to advance the cause of better legal writing. The Institute is conferring this year’s award to NAAG based on our efforts to improve the states’ appellate advocacy through such endeavors as the NAAG Best Briefs Awards. Prior recipients of the award include then-SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt, New York Times Supreme Court correspondent Linda Greenhouse, and several state and federal court judges.

The Legal Writing Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving legal writing by providing a forum for discussion and scholarship about legal writing, analysis, and research. The Institute is the second largest organization of law professors in the United States, with more than 2100 members from thirty-eight countries.

NAAG Supreme Court Counsel Dan Schweitzer will accept the award at the next annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, which will take place in San Diego, California on January 9, 2009.
