Event Synopsis:

Appellate practice requires skills distinct from trial practice. The development of issues for appellate consideration requires a different perspective from the points raised in litigation. Depending on the level of appellate court and the composition of the appellate bench, it’s often advantageous to have a fresh review of the record to identify those issues that will be of interest to a particular court and to present the ramifications of the case in the most persuasive fashion. At the appellate level, competent brief writing is essential to present the main points with clarity and logic that strikes a chord of justice. States’ highest courts and federal appellate courts are frequently concerned with the policy consequences of a decision and this a topic not generally addressed at the trial level. The benefits of using experienced appellate counsel as the primary attorney or as a consultant can greatly enhance the potential for success.

This webinar will cover:

· How to best analyze and identify the strongest points for appellate development
· Key considerations in drafting an appellate brief
· The value of editing and understanding modern judicial legal-writing preferences
· How to best prepare for oral argument
· Persuasive presentation techniques for oral argument
· How to best involve your client during preparation of an appellate case
