The Best Brief Competition is an annual event that recognizes outstanding legal writing by first-year students.  The Legal Research and Writing faculty select the best appellate briefs from among those written by their spring semester students.  Next, Wisconsin attorneys evaluate the semi-finalists' briefs to determine who will become finalists.  A panel of Law School faculty then evaluates the finalists' briefs to decide the winner.  The winner of the competition will be announced in October 2019.
