Live Cary | North Carolina Bar Center Friday, September 28, 2018
An all-star slate of speakers leads a deep dive inside appeals to explore thoughtful strategic, practical (and even spiritual) steps you can take to further develop your appellate practice and hone your appellate skills.
In this wide-ranging program designed for intermediate to advanced appellate practitioners, we receive strategic advice from advocates and judges, discuss ways appellate counsel can work with trial counsel and rescue unpreserved errors for the record, revisit lessons from moot court to hone your oral argument skills, and learn how to incorporate mindfulness practices to improve your appellate practice.
Planned by the NCBA Appellate Practice Section
