I’ll be speaking today with Blake Hawthorne at the UT State and Federal Appeals Conference about some recent changes in electronic briefing rules and what they mean for appellate advocacy.

The paper that goes with our presentation is posted here. It covers the big picture, as well as some practical tips for improving your electronic briefs. I’m also posting a PDF of the slides from our talk.

If you’re interested in a how-to guide, last week I posted a working paper about how to make simple electronic briefs. It offers my own suggested workflow through the major steps of the process, as well as some tips about redacting safely.
