Effective appellate advocacy requires more than just a well-written brief. This course will instruct the participant on appellate fundamentals (both practical and theoretical) applicable to any state or federal appeal. Mastery of these universal fundamentals will allow the participant to present their client’s case more persuasively to an appellate panel and better their chances of success.
