Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

DRI Appellate Advocacy Seminar Set for February 28-29

My fellow appellate lawyer Ray Ward (who writes a couple of excellent blogs, the (new) legal writer and Minor Wisdom) asked me to plug the upcoming DRI Appellate Advocacy Seminar, to be held at the J. W. Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes (that’s Florida, folks) on February 28-29, 2008.  Though sponsored by “the voice of the defense bar,” the brochure indicates that the seminar will benefit appellate specialists, in-house counsel who supervise appeals, civil trial lawyers, judges and law professors, and appellate court clerks alike.  Ray has posted a sneak peek at the agenda and his accolades for this program here.
