Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Review of Litigation Announces Appellate Symposium

The Review of Litigation, a student journal at the University of Texas School of Law, has asked me to help promote its upcoming symposium entitled “The Rise of Appellate Litigators and State Solicitors General.”  Timed to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Texas Solicitor General’s Office, the symposium will explore the creation of state solicitor general and state appellate chief positions, as well as matters significant to private appellate practitioners.

The symposium will take place on January 22-23, 2009, in the Eidman Courtroom at UT Law School.  Admission is free, and CLE credit will be provided for a reasonable fee.  More information, including how to register, is available here.
