Mundell Medal for Legal Writing Award [WEBCAST ONLY] 

Dec. 7, 2020
ON

The Mundell Medal honours those who have made a distinguished contribution to law and letters.

The medal is awarded by the Attorney General on the recommendation of a selection committee chaired by the Honourable George Strathy, Chief Justice of Ontario. It was established in 1986 by former Attorney General Ian Scott, in the name of prominent constitutional lawyer and first director of the ministry’s Constitutional Law Branch, David Walter Mundell, as “a kind of Pulitzer Prize for legal writing.”

Each year, the award aims to help advance and foster the effective use of language in the legal profession by recognizing a legal writer whose literary craftsmanship and clarity of expression work together to make ideas come alive. Expert grasp of the subject, sharp analysis and clear language are the hallmarks of the best legal writing.
