With classes starting up again at law schools around the nation and the October 2016 Supreme Court term fast approaching, we could all use some levity. Thankfully, the Appellate Section of the State Bar of Texas is offering just the thing--an Appellate Advocacy Meme contest. Here is the information that I received about the contest:
Reminder to send in your submission to the Appellate Meme Contest:
There’s still time to participate in the Appellate Section's meme contest. Here’s a link to one meme generator site, but there are many such free apps and websites that make it easy to create your own appellate meme. Just find an appropriate photo, upload it, add your creative, funny, snarky, or “appealing” caption, and click “generate meme.” Then right click on your image and save it to your desktop.
All submissions are due by August 31 and should be sent to Jeff Levinger [email@example.com] and April Farris [Farris.firstname.lastname@example.org]. Winners will be announced at the Appellate Section annual meeting on September 8, 2016, during the first day of the Advanced Civil Appellate Practice Course in Austin.
I hope that the Appellate Section will share the winning meme with us!
If memes are not your thing, Scholastica is hosting a haiku contest on Twitter. They are asking people to tweet their best haikus about the law review submission process using the hashtag #LawRevHaiku.
