Appellate practice is much more than brief writing and oral argument. Effective appellate advocacy requires a thorough understanding of the many jurisdictional and procedural hurdles that arise during an appeal.

This program steps through the appellate process with particular attention to key areas often overlooked by practitioners, including interlocutory appeals, enforcing and staying judgments on appeal, seeking discretionary review in higher appellate courts, and requesting relief in the trial court during an appeal.

  • Hear from appellate judges, clerks of court, and experienced practitioners who shed light on some of the most common yet perplexing issues in appellate practice and procedure.
  • Gain valuable insight into often-overlooked areas of the appellate process through experienced appellate judges, court clerks, and practitioners.
  • Get an overview of recent developments and hot topics in key areas of appellate practice including interlocutory appeals, enforcing and staying judgments on appeal, and seeking relief in the trial court during an appeal.
  • Hear tips on effective brief writing and learn how to best position your case for review by the North Carolina Supreme Court and United States Supreme Court.
  • Refresh your appellate procedure knowledge and prepare for the State Bar Appellate Practice Specialization examination.

LIVE and WEBCAST program registrants will be notified when the materials are available in electronic format, usually a week prior to the date of the program. 

VIDEO REPLAY program registrants will have access to electronic materials at the same time as the live program registrants or immediately if registration occurs after the live program date.
