LAW 2754 - Advanced Appellate Advocacy

A more in-depth study of the appellate process than the first-year course in Appellate Advocacy, this course covers the preparation of an appeal from the decision to take the appeal through the filing of the brief and record and, finally, the oral argument.  
In addition to preparing a brief on appeal, students will learn how to prepare other appellate papers, including the notice of appeal, preargument submissions, appellate motions (including motions for leave to appeal and reargument) and petitions for writs of certiorari. Students also will learn how to compile and master the record, assess appealable issues and develop appellate strategies.
Through related readings and class discussions, students will conduct a critical analysis of the appellate judging process, and students will have the opportunity to observe and study actual appellate oral arguments. Writing Requirement II may be satisfied in this course.
