I’ve just learned that the Texas Pattern Jury Charges Plain Language Project will receive a ClearMark award from the Center for Plain Language at an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. on April 28. I was the writing consultant on the project, which began in 2005 and culminated in final approval of the revised jury charges by the Texas Supreme Court on April 1.
I have written about the project here:
