Presented October 1, 2021

It covers the progression of the average appeal, beginning with initiation, assembly of the record, and basic motion practice; the hard work of analyzing the record and writing your first appellate brief; and successfully and effectively presenting your first appellate oral argument. It closes with reflection by experienced appellate practitioners on things an attorney should be particularly wary.
