This morning, I gave my semi-annual presentation on appellate practice for the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Bridging the Gap seminar for new lawyers. For them and anyone else who may be interested, here are the bonus materials that I promised:
- A PDF copy of my slide presentation
- U.S. 7th Circuit’s Requirements and Suggestions for Typography in Briefs and Other Papers
- Ruth Anne Robbins, Painting With Print
Below are links to downloadable PDFs of sample appellate briefs and pleadings. For reasons stated during the seminar, please do not follow these slavishly; the rules may have changed since these were written.
