William Callison Receives Burton Award for Legal Writing

William Callison, a partner in Faegre & Benson's Denver office, has been named a winner of the 2011 Burton Award for Legal Writing. The Burton Awards for Legal Achievement is a national program run in association with the Library of Congress and its law library. Only 30 lawyers nationwide are honored each year with the legal writing award.

Callison, along with co-author Allan Vestal, dean at Drake University Law School, won the award for the article "The LC3 Illusion: Why Low Profit Limited Liability Companies will not Stimulate Socially Optimal Private Foundation Investment in Entrepreneurial Ventures." Published in the fall 2010 issue of Vermont Law Review, the article discusses developments in state legislation of LC3 laws from 2008, when Vermont became the first state to enact such provisions, up to the current status of the law.

Callison, his co-author, and other Burton Award winners will be honored at an awards ceremony on June 13 at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
