APPELLATE PRACTICE: PRESERVING ISSUES FOR APPEAL AT TRIAL, AND HOW TO WRITE THE BRIEFS AND ARGUE SUCCESSFULL APPEALS



Details

Date: 05/16/2013

3 CLE Credits -2 Skills & 1 Areas of Professional Practice

 

Seminar Overview:

 

You work so hard on your case to win, and you want to preserve that win, or reverse that loss: our speakers shall give you the tips you need to be successful. By knowing what is important on an appeal, you will learn what to do at Trial to preserve those appellate issues. If you don't do it the "right" way at Trial, it will not be preserved for appeal!

 

If I object, is that enough to preserve an issue on appeal? When should I do more than just object? Do I need to move for a mistrial? Should I go sidebar if there is no record of what is said? What should I do when a Judge will not let me make a record? What "dehors the record?" Do I need to object during summation and what happens if I don't? What should I do during the charge conference if the Judge disagrees with me, or if a charge is given incorrectly? Is a request for a curative instruction necessary?

 

Answers to these questions and so many more is the intent of this program. Appellate Practice is a critical part of every case, whether it is an Interlocutory Appeal or from a Trial. How to create the best presentation possible is the key to every appeal. You will hear from Appellate Division Judges and Practitioners what makes a Brief on Appeal most effective, and you will learn what they want to hear and techniques to use at oral argument.
