A lawyer struggles to find professional happiness. A juror uses his influence to his advantage. A big-firm partner combats guilt. These are the compelling premises of the well-written and creative first, second, and third place winners of the 2016 Texas Bar Journal Short Story Contest.

Thank you to the 40 writers who submitted entries this year. To keep the contest fair and impartial, author names were removed from each entry. Two panels of judges faced the challenging task of selecting the winners, and for each round, the same evaluation form was used for consistency. Ten entries advanced to the final round, which was judged by Mike Farris of Dallas, Amanda Moore of Austin, and Lane D. Thibodeaux of Bryan.
