High-quality appellate CLE

If you’re looking for high-quality appellate CLE, I have a couple of suggestions.

The first is the DRI Appellate Advocacy Seminar, to be held in Chicago on July 18 and 19. I’ve been a member of the DRI Appellate Advocacy Committee since 1998 or so, and I’ve attended all but one of its seminars. They’ve been consistently excellent. This one promises to continue that tradition of excellence. Judges and former judges on the faculty include Bernice Bouie Donald (U.S. 6th Cir.), Sara L. Ellis (N.D. Ill.), Joan N. Ericksen (D. Minn.), Eva Guzman (Tex. Supreme Ct.), Wallace B. Jefferson (former chief justice of the Tex. Supreme Court), Theodore A. McKee (U.S. 3d Cir.), Margret G. Robb (Ind. Ct. App.), Michael J. Talbot (Mich. Ct. App.), James A. Wynn, Jr. (U.S. 4th Cir.), and — drum roll — Richard A. Posner (U.S 7th Cir.).

The second is the Appellate Judges Educational Institute Summit, to be held in Dallas on November 13–16. This event brings together appellate judges, lawyers, and staff attorneys for education and socializing. The program hasn’t been released yet, but based on the AJEI’s past performance, I’m confident that this one will be worthwhile.
