I (@TessaDysart) recently received an email from Professor Jennifer Romig (@JenniferMRomig) at Emory Law suggesting that this blog cover some of the great appellate advocacy discussions on Twitter. What a great idea! I asked my research assistant--Adam Burton (@AdamTylerBurton)--to help me put together a list of appellate lawyers and judges who are on Twitter. My hope is to post a few names each week on #TwitterTuesday.
Today, because it has been a busy day, we will cover a few judges to follow:
Justice Don Willett (@JusticeWillett) serves on the Supreme Court of Texas and is the self-proclaimed “Tweeter Laureate” of Texas. This former bull rider provides great (and sometimes hilarious) commentary on contemporary issues in the legal community. Justice Willett often shares articles for practicing attorneys, including one on Lawyer’s using Twitter!
Judge Stephen Dillard (@JudgeDillard) is a Vice Chief Judge for the Court of Appeals of Georgia. Judge Dillard provides fun commentary on appellate cases, support for Samford University football, and even offers advice to budding appellate attorneys. Judge Dillard recently used Twitter to announce that he was not interested in pursing an appointment to the Supreme Court of Georgia.
Judge Carla McMillian (@JudgeCarla) serves on the Georgia Court of Appeals. Judge McMillian often tweets background news and history of the court as well as information and opportunities for law students, particularly in the Peach State.
What judges do you follow on Twitter? We would love to add to this list!
