Appellate practice is being transformed through technological advancements and judicial preferences.

Research is done online, briefs are written to be read on a screen, case files are uploaded and downloaded electronically, and oral arguments are heard via Skype.

These developments require attorneys to learn and incorporate new skills.

This one-day CLE educates appellate practitioners of all levels on the technologies here today and coming tomorrow, as well as the skills needed to successfully harness those changes.

In addition to a segment discussing cases pending before the United States Supreme Court, the program also incorporates lessons on how to draft briefs and prepare for oral argument in the digital age of appellate practice.
