 Briefs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Briefs are a type of Y-shaped underwear and swimwear, as opposed to styles where the material extends down the legs.
In the case of men's underwear, briefs (unlike boxer shorts) hold the user's genitals in a relatively fixed position, which makes briefs a popular underwear choice for men who are participating in athletic activities or who feel they need more support than loose-fitting underwear can provide.
In various continental European languages, briefs are not called by a word indicating shortness, but rather by the English word slip, which in English is rather used for a type of lingerie, the slip (clothing).

 Brief (law) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A brief or factum (latin for "act" or "deed") is a written legal document used in various legal adversary systems that is presented to a court arguing why the party to the case should prevail.
A brief is also sometimes called a memorandum of law, although that term is also used to describe an internal document in a law firm in which an attorney attempts to analyze a client's legal position without arguing for a specific interpretation of the law.
The brief or memorandum establishes the legal argument for the party, explaining why the reviewing court should affirm or reverse the lower court's judgment based on legal precedent and citations to the controlling cases or statutory law.
