Hear from esteemed jurists about best practices for critical skills whether issue spotting, framing the case, or preparing oral and written submissions. Our presenters, all experienced appellate lawyers, tell you what works for them and the judges offer guidance on what resonates in their courtrooms during this half day program.

  • Develop an efficient strategy and timeline for perfecting your appeal
  • Hear how to amplify your ability to properly (and meaningfully) answer judges’ questions
