I love clear writing. But, on further review, maybe what I love is interesting clear writing. That is, maybe clarity is necessary but not sufficient.
Take children’s books. Many are clearly written. But that’s small solace as you lay there reading a clear-but-boring tale to your beloved offspring for the 1,000th time.
Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton, who sits on the Sixth Circuit, is famous for his interesting clear writing. Like this.
And His Honor is coming to town. On April 3, Judge Sutton will be speaking at Campbell Law School, in Room 105, from 4:45 to 5:45, on his new book, 51 Imperfect Solutions: States and the Making of American Constitutional Law.
Many thanks to Christy Dunn for the tip, to the Campbell Federalist Society for hosting the event, and to Dean Leonard for allowing me to spread the word.
