Appellate Advocacy

New Orleans

Sheraton New Orleans

Sheraton New Orleans,
New Orleans, LA

Experienced appellate practitioners, in-house counsel, and occasional appellate advocates alike will benefit from a distinguished faculty of judges, in-house counsel, and leading practitioners providing valuable insight on every stage of an appeal. This program features presentations on the effect of various technological advances on brief writing, certification of issues to a state court, and the role of insurance on appeal. The program also offers guidance on brief writing and preparation for argument in the context of en banc review and discusses strategic considerations when the government is a party to your appeal. A panel of in-house counsel will offer insight on the appeal process and effective management of appeals, and for the first time, our highly regarded mock argument will be held at the United States District Court, just blocks from our hotel.
