Bruce Ackerman ’67 Receives Scribes Book Award
Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science Bruce Ackerman ’67 has been honored by Scribes: The American Society of Legal Writers for the best law book published in 2006. Ackerman was named co-winner of the Scribes Book Award for Before the Next Attack: Preserving Civil Liberties in an Age of Terrorism.
In Before the Next Attack, Professor Ackerman addresses the threat to civil liberties posed by terrorist attacks that trigger the enactment of repressive laws. He proposes an “emergency constitution” that enables government to take extraordinary actions to prevent a second strike in the short run while prohibiting permanent measures that destroy our freedom over the longer run.
Scribes is a national society of judges, lawyers, law professors, legal publishers, legal writers, and legal editors dedicated to improving legal writing across the profession. The Scribes Book Award has been awarded annually since 1961 to honor the best work of legal scholarship published in the previous year.
