Scribes Brief-Writing Award
 
Overview
 
     Since 1996 Scribes has presented an annual award for the best student-written brief. We believe that legal writing is of paramount importance to law students and their careers, and we hope to encourage good legal writing by recognizing its finest examples. Scribes presents the award to the authors at the annual luncheon in August.
