Created on September 08, 2017




Federal criminal appeals are a constant source of uncertainty among the criminal defense bar. The rules in every Circuit Court differ from one to the next. How do I file an appendix, how many copies are required, does the court require hyperlinking? These are just a few of the questions you should be asking yourself if you are filing a federal criminal appellate brief.

This program presents an overview of the federal criminal appellate process, the rules that control the process, and practical advice for navigating both. We will cover topics from the first filing of the notice of appeal to Writ of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.
