The State Bar of Texas Appellate Section’s Annual Twitter Brief competition garnered more than 100 entries in its first two years, some from as far away as Hawaii. (See last year’s winning entries here.)

The section hopes to continue that trend this year. Tweet about the competition with the hashtag #140brief.

Competition rules: Draft an appellate brief consisting of no more than 140 characters (including spaces). Email your brief by Sept. 6, 2013, to Karen Precella at The winning Twitter briefs will be announced at the section’s annual meeting and printed in the Appellate Advocate.
