This afternoon, I co-presented an hour of CLE on appellate practice for the Louisiana State Bar Association’s “Bridging the Gap” seminar, a program for newly minted lawyers who passed the February 2014 bar exam. For attendees and anyone else who may be interested, here are some supplemental materials used or discussed in the presentation:
- A PDF copy of my PowerPoint presentation
- Recent amendments of the Uniform Rules of Louisiana Courts of Appeal, effective May 1, 2014
- Two entertaining and informative articles by Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Ninth Circuit:
If you’re looking for samples of appellate pleadings and briefs, I have some collected at this prior blog post. I cannot vouch for their currentness, because the Uniform Rules have been updated twice since I uploaded them. So use them if you must, but don’t trust them, because they were written under a different set of rules.
