I'd like to apprise you of an upcoming seminar an appellate advocacy. I do so not solely because I am a member of the committee sponsoring the seminar; my experiences attending past seminars make me confident to say that this committee's seminars are some of the finest I've attended.
The upcoming Appellate Advocacy Seminar is sponsored by the DRI and will be held in Orlando, Florida on February 28-29, 2008. The seminar's brochure is attached here: Download final_dri_app_advocacy.pdf
A distinguished faculty of judges, professors, and appellate practitioners who will provide various perspectives on appellate advocacy. A panel of federal and state appellate judges--Judge Diane Sykes of the Seventh Circuit, Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal of the South Carolina Supreme Court, and Judge Theodore McKee of the Third Circuit--will discuss the view from the other side of the bench.
Dahlia Lithwick, a professional writer, will offer insights on how to create prose that will draw in the reader, and Professor Ruth Robbins will discuss the value of persuasion through appearance.
James Duff, director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, will examine trends in federal appellate practice. Additionally, a panel of general counsel will share their views on the role of appellate lawyers during significant trials.
The seminar will be held at the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes Resort. The number of credit hours is pending, but it should be around 12 hours, including one hour of ethics credit.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I can send you excerpts of the quality materials that I received during past seminars to help you make your decision to attend this upcoming seminar.
