Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Results of the Twitter Brief Contest

As I wrote about here, the State Bar Appellate Section sponsored a Twitter brief contest in conjunction with the recent Advanced Civil Appellate Practice Course in Austin.  The winners were announced during the Section’s annual meeting.

The official PowerPoint containing the winning entries and several honorable mentions is embedded below for everyone’s enjoyment.

I intend to put up a couple more follow-up posts about the conference over the next few days. At least one of them will further demonstrate that appellate lawyers can have fun, too.
