Effective Appellate Advocacy: Making the Most of Your Second Bite of the Apple

Understand how to take full advantage of the appellate process.

When a judgment or verdict is entered against your client, the battle is not over. Effective use of the appellate process gives you the perfect opportunity to reverse the tide and turn defeat into victory. However, ill-prepared and sloppy appellate work can just as easily allow you to lose your victory in the blink of an eye. This topic examines the process of handling appeals and special writs from soup to nuts. Emphasis will be provided on tips and techniques for writing a stronger brief as well and improving your oral advocacy. By following the helpful, pragmatic principles discussed, you will express your positions with greater persuasiveness and clarity. There will also be an interactive segment where your questions can be addressed. The topic is designed to give confidence and competence to the novice practitioner as well as providing helpful insights for the most seasoned of appellate attorneys. Your paradigm will shift from seeing appeals as a last-ditch, desperate chance to save your case to maximally ensuring justice for your clients.
