Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

SBOT Sponsoring YouTube Contest

The State Bar of Texas has contacted a number of law bloggers for assistance in promoting its YouTube contest, “Lone Star Stories:  Texans on Justice.”  I am happy to oblige.

The SBOT is touting this contest as the first of its kind by a bar association.  Follow the links for a copy of the press release and an upcoming article in Texas Lawyer.

The contest is part of President Gib Walton’s public education initiative on the justice system and is intended to give all Texans a venue to share their vision of the promise of justice for all.  Two winners will receive $2,500 prizes and a trip to the January State Bar board meeting in Grapevine.  Entries will be accepted between October 15 and December 15.

Congratulations to the SBOT for taking on such a worthy project in such an innovative way.
