The Burton Awards for Legal Achievement


2013 Burton Awards – ALA Publication Awards
Once again, ALA is proud to feature the ALA Publication Awards as part of the nationally recognized Burton Awards program. In 2013, the Burton Awards will celebrate its fourteenth year as it continues its prominent association with the Library of Congress. This year, Tony, Emmy and Grammy nominee Vanessa Williams will perform at the gala.

 
Library of Congress

The Library of Congress is one of the most celebrated and distinguished libraries in the world. This prominent institution was established by an act of Congress in 1800 and since that time has grown to become one of the largest repositories of books, manuscripts, and legal materials ever collected. The Library of Congress functions as both a national library and as the research arm of the United States Congress. It contains more than 32 million catalogued books and 62 million manuscripts.
 

The Burton Foundation

The Burton Foundation is a nonprofit, cultural and academic organization devoted to further promoting the stature of the legal profession. The founder of the Burton Awards for Legal Achievement and Co-Founder of the Holmes Debates is William C. Burton, a partner in the law firm Sagat Burton LLP.
