All About Appellate Advocacy
~ written by Lori Clary, Chair of the CLE program Development Task Force, Organizer of "Appellate Advocacy" CLE
Think appellate advocacy is just a continuation of trial advocacy? Think again. Appellate advocacy has a purpose all its own along with its own set of rules and its own particular hurdles to clear. The Columbus Bar is therefore pleased to offer a Masters’ Series CLE program devoted exclusively to the ins and outs of appellate advocacy.
A full-day program is set for Thursday, June 28, 9:00am to 4:30pm. Topics will include obtaining/defeating discretionary review, merits briefing, oral argument, final appealable orders, and amicus briefing along with Q & A sessions with appellate judges and practitioners alike. Presenters include Judge Jeffrey Sutton from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, Judges Judy French and William Klatt from the Tenth District Court of Appeals, and Judge Clair E. Dickinson from the Ninth District Court of Appeals. The program has been submitted for 6.0 hours of CLE credit and has been approved by the OSBA for specialization CLE credit in the area of appellate law.
