Professor John Langbein Honored for Legal Writing
Sterling Professor of Law and Legal History John Langbein was selected as a 2013 Honoree for Exemplary Writing by The Green Bag, a quarterly journal dedicated to good writing about the law.
Professor Langbein is being honored for his article “The Disappearance of Civil Trial in the United States” (122 Yale Law Journal 522). He has twice before been similarly honored by The Green Bag – once in 2005 for his article “Questioning the Trust Law Duty of Loyalty” (also first published in The Yale Law Journal), and again in 2010 for his book History of the Common Law: The Development of Anglo-American Legal Institutions (Wolters Kluwer, 2009), written with Renee L. Lerner and Bruce P. Smith.
Also making The Green Bag’s 2013 list for Exemplary Legal Writing are Judge Brett Kavanaugh ’90 for his opinion in Vann v. U.S. Department of the Interior; Harvard Law Professor Randall Kennedy ’82 for his book For Discrimination: Race, Affirmative Action, and the Law (Pantheon Books, 2013); UC Davis Professor of Law Jack Chin ’95 LLM for his blog post titled “Getting Law Review Fans Out of the Closet: Liptak on Jacobs and Waxman”; and Duke University Professor of Law Stephen E. Sachs ’07 for an amicus curiae brief in Atlantic Marine Construction Co. v. U.S. District Court.
Professor Langbein’s winning article, along with the writings by the other honorees, will be republished in The Green Bag’s 2014 Almanac & Reader.
