Paralegal's Role in the Appellate Process

Understand the appellate process and the responsibilities and duties unique to the paralegal.

The appellate process can be a daunting and even overwhelming task for any attorney and legal staff. Where do we start? What is required to start the brief? How do we comply with court requirements? How do we identify the issues on appeal? How do we develop facts and argument to use in our brief? What does a winning appellate brief look like? This topic will remove the barriers to the appellate process, and provide guidance on developing the issues, the arguments, the facts, and the legal support for a successful appellate brief. Come prepared to load up with skills and perspective on constructing an appellate brief that will make a difference for your client.
