PLI’s Appellate Advocacy 2011 program will give insight into effective appellate advocacy. Attendees will learn about 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.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Strategic choices in the trial court, as well as common trial court issues to watch out for
  • Strategic choices in the court of appeals
  • How to be an effective advocate - both in brief writing and in oral argument
  • What judges find most persuasive
  • Petitions for rehearing and petitions for certiorari
  • Ethical issues that arise in the appellate process

This program is chaired by Washington partner, David Gossett. David will be joined by New York partner, Lauren Rosenblum Goldman will be speaking.
