Counsel Press cordially invites attorneys in the Rochester, NY area to attend our popular CLE program “Appeals: How to Take Them and Win Them.” This program is presented in conjunction with the Greater Rochester Association for Women Attorneys (GRAWA). The event is open and complimentary to the GRAWA members and Counsel Press’ invitees.
This CLE seminar will be held on Thursday, October 2, 2014 (2:45pm-5:00pm) at Large Conference Room, 8th Floor, Powers Building, Rochester.
About the Program:
“Appeals: How to Take Them and Win Them” focuses on the appellate process in New York’s appellate courts as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Attendees will learn the methods for bringing and perfecting appeals in the Appellate Divisions, how to manage the limited appeals jurisdiction of the New York Court of Appeals and the many filings that are performed in the Second Circuit. Once the procedural aspects of appellate practice are understood, the attorney presenters will provide practical tips and strategies for writing powerful appellate briefs and delivering persuasive oral arguments. The program concludes with various ethical considerations facing appellate practitioners and landmines to avoid.
