Barry Friedman Awarded ABA Silver Gavel
On July 17, the American Bar Association presented Barry E. Friedman of NYU School of Law with the Silver Gavel Award for his book Unwarranted: Policing Without Permission. The presentation took place at The National Press Club in Washington, DC.
Each year since 1958, the ABA has honored compelling and interesting works by the media that foster the public’s understanding of law and the legal system. This year, the 2018 Silver Gavel award-winning works focused on such matters as: policing, Japanese-American internment during World War II, Thurgood Marshall, Guantánamo, a murder trial, and mortgage-fraud prosecution. These awards are highly selective — this year the ABA is presenting only six Silver Gavels and four Honorable Mentions among nearly 200 entries received.
A Q&A with Professor Friedman and an excerpt of his novel is included in the Awards Program.
