Federal Appellate Treatise, Second Edition

December 2013

Published by Bloomberg BNA

Editor-in-Chief: Philip Allen Lacovara

Edited and authored by Mayer Brown lawyers, Bloomberg BNA’s Second Edition, Federal Appellate Practice book is the primary resource for fully understanding the federal appellate process. The book guides practitioners through the federal appellate process – from preserving and protecting the record in the trial court, through all stages of briefing and arguing appeals, to preliminary considerations relating to possible Supreme Court review.

The Second Edition addresses significant amendments to both the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure and the local rules of various circuits. Additionally, it incorporates an enormous volume of opinions since the first edition was released. It also updates the state of the law and captures many of the comments made in appellate decisions, including in unpublished orders, reflecting the views of particulate circuits or judges about what works and what does not, in handling appeals.

The Second Edition also explores new and expanded topics, including principles and modern techniques for effective appellate brief writing, practice tips and techniques, problems of appealability and solutions, preparing and delivering oral arguments, seeking rehearing, seeking or opposing costs and attorney’s fees, availability of extraordinary writs, mechanics of preparing the record and appendix, and more.
