THIS PAST SUMMER, Penn Law became only the third law school in the country (Stanford and Emory are the others) to receive the Record of Distinction Award from The Burton Foundation. The award recognizes schools with students who have won The Burton Awards for legal writing three or more years.
Noting the honor, William C. Burton, founder and chairman of The Burton Awards, wrote: “We believe that the repeated accomplishments of your students are a direct reflection of the quality of teaching, training and education provided at Penn Law.”
The Burton Awards are considered the highest honor for legal writing in the country. Commenting on Penn Law’s achievement, Anne Kringel, senior lecturer and legal writing director, said: “Penn received the Record of Distinction Award because our students have won a Burton Award every time they were nominated. The Award recognizes the strength of our students’ writing and scholarship.”
The Law School’s three winners were Aaron Kesselheim L’02, Michael Bacchus L’03, and Alex Kreit L’04.
In other news, Law School Dean Michael A. Fitts served as program director of the Holmes Debates held at the Library of Congress in June. This year the annual debate was on terrorism. Participants were academics, including Kim Lane Scheppele of Penn Law School, and members of the Justice Department, as well as William Cohen, former Secretary of Defense and Senator from Maine.
