The Green Bag (www.greenbag.org), a quarterly journal dedicated to good writing about the law, has announced its annual list (PDF) of outstanding legal writing from the past year. Five Harvard Law School faculty members are among this year's honorees.
In the “Books” category (which also encompasses law review articles of more than 25,000 words), the honorees include: Professor William J. Stuntz’s “Unequal Justice,” 121 Harvard Law Review 1969 (2008); Professor Laurence Tribe’s “The Invisible Constitution,” (Oxford University Press 2008); and Professor Jonathan Zittrain’s “The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It,” (Yale University Press 2008).
The “Short Articles” category include Professor Michael Klarman’s concluding essay in “Unfinished Business: Racial Equality in American History,” (Oxford University Press 2007).
Professor Joseph Singer’s “Things that We Would Like to Take for Granted,” 2 Harvard Law & Policy Review 139 (2008), is among the pieces selected in the “Long Articles” category.
The honorees were selected by the journal’s special board of advisers, which includes distinguished members of the state and federal judiciaries, private law firms, the news media, and academia.
