Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice: The Record and Briefing an Eighth Circuit Appeal
Preserving and presenting a complete record for review by the court of appeals is vital. An appeal brief’s purpose is to help the court efficiently resolve appeals. Thus, the heart of the appellate process is briefing. A good brief is the difference – often, the only difference – between victory and defeat. Join our esteemed panel of Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice experts as they discuss the importance of the record and briefing on appeal and provide practical tips in preparing for your next appeal.

  • the frequency of oral argument,
  • how the judges prepare for oral argument,
  • what judges are looking for during oral argument,

Our panel of Eighth Circuit Appellate Practice experts will address the rules on rehearing, the grounds for rehearing and a party’s odds on rehearing. This course will also address the factors that make a case a good candidate for certiorari – and a petition for certiorari a persuasive one – as well as the technical requirements for petitions and responses to petitions.
