Exemplary Legal Writing: Green Bag 2011 nominees

by Ted McClure 7. November 2011 17:23

The Green Bag has posted its nominees for Exemplary Legal Writing for 2011.

During November and early December, the luminaries and sages on our board of advisers will select ... those works that should appear in the 2012 Almanac & Reader as exemplars of good legal writing from the year just passed.

We have all but three of the nominated books, and those three are on order. Highly recommended.
