Federal Appellate Practice Teleconference: Appellate Procedure in The Federal Circuit

"From the soup of preserving issues at trial to the nuts of how to get Supreme Court review, it's all here." - Chief Judge Alex Kozinski, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, on Federal Appellate Practice

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

To coincide with BNA Books' publication of Mayer Brown's Federal Appellate Practice, our Supreme Court & Appellate practice is pleased to offer a complimentary teleconference series focusing on topics of interest to counsel dealing with appeals in the federal courts. Each 30-minute session, led by various authors of the book, will offer an inside look at how to successfully navigate the federal appeals process.

The third event in our series focused on Appellate Procedure in the Federal Circuit and was led by the authors of this chapter, partners Donald Falk and Sharon Israel. Donald and Sharon discussed some of the unique and occasionally idiosyncratic aspects of appellate practice in the Federal Circuit, from its varied jurisdiction, to motions practice, to the special challenges of advocacy in a specialist court composed in large part of generalist judges.
