Speaker, New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education, "Appellate Practice Master Class – Fall 2023 Edition"


September 19, 2023 | 9:00 AM - September 19, 2023 | 11:30 AM EST

Join esteemed appellate jurists and practitioners as they present a seminar in which they highlight the best practices for representing your clients on appeal. You will gain the perspectives of a retired New Jersey Supreme Court Justice and current judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the New Jersey Appellate Division, as well as respected appellate attorneys.

The speakers will review the best practices for filing appeals and petitions for certification, as well as motions for leave to appeal. Additionally, the speakers will touch on best practices for writing persuasive appellate briefs and advocating effectively before an appellate panel, and present the “The 10 plus Commandments of Oral Argument.” You will receive insights into what appellate judges want to see and hear – and what they don’t.

The panel will also analyze important ethics and professionalism issues, giving examples of unacceptable practices such as misrepresenting the record, not checking sites supplied by artificial intelligence and displaying lack of courtesy to opposing counsel.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see an expanded version of the “Master Class” that was presented at the 2023 Annual Meeting.
