This course will cover all aspects of the appellate process, beginning with preparation for appeal in the trial court or administrative agency.
The course will address recurring problems in handling appeals, and will use problem-solving exercises and diverse readings in appellate law and practice.
It will address issues of appellate advocacy, both written and oral, but will not be primarily a skills course.
Grades will be based on several written assignments, active participation in (and preparation for) class, and a final exam. The written work will not satisfy the long-paper requirement.
