About the Program
Most lawyers, including trial lawyers, know the basics of an appeal. But what many attorneys don’t think about is that crucial time, whether it's in the early stages of an appeal or after a decision has been rendered, when you have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of filing a motion or a petition for certification.  At those particular times, many appellate attorneys find themselves asking the following questions:  Are there any grounds to move to dismiss the appeal?  Should I move for articulation?  Is it a better strategy to move for reconsideration en banc or jump right to a petition for certification?  How can I draft a successful petition for certification?  How you analyze these questions can have a significant impact on your appeal and can change the outcome of a case. At this program, three experienced appellate attorneys will give you their unique insights into appellate motions practice

You Will Learn

  • How to draft an effective petition for certification
  • The various motions available to appellate practitioners and how best to make use of them
  • How to draft a successful motion or petition for certification from the practitioner's perspective
  • How the various motions and petitions are handled and decided within the court
