Reading and Writing Advanced E-Briefs: What Works and What Doesn't

AJEI 2014 ()

I moderated a panel about electronic briefs at the 2014 American Judges Education Institute, held in Dallas. The panelists were Judge Stephen Higginson of the Fifth Circuit, Justice Virginia Linder of the Oregon Supreme Court, and Kevin Newsom of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP.

We discussed how the federal and state judiciaries are adapting to electronic briefs.

  • Practical differences in how judges read e-briefs, both on iPads and on desktops.

  • How advocates can write e-briefs that are more helpful to courts

  • Some considerations for courts that are adopting their own e-briefing rules
