Appellate Advocacy will give you real-world insight into effective appellate advocacy. Attendees will learn about all aspects of the appellate process, from things to do (and not to do) in the trial court, to strategies and techniques for persuasive brief writing and oral argument, to how and when to seek amicus support, to the rehearing and certiorari processes. Attendees will also hear the "View from the Bench" - what judges find persuasive and effective.

Bradley partner Kevin Newsom will be speaking on the topic, "Appellate Advocacy: Effective and Persuasive Brief Writing" with co-speaker Stephen Kinnaird.
