As every attorney knows, there is much to consider and prepare for in order to successfully argue a case before a state or federal court. But to argue an appeal before a state or federal court, requires a higher level of attention to detail and persuasion as well as developing the confidence to stand your ground. This becomes especially important as a case makes it way through multiple rounds of appeals or becomes a candidate for Supreme Court review.

This course, taught by Robert B. Fitzpatrick, a leading employment lawyer who is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, will assist attorneys, new and experienced, in developing the skill set needed to effectively argue an appeal.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the importance of first impressions, including decorum, civility, and "roadmaps"
  2. Identify the role and goals of the Court in which you are arguing your appeal
  3. Assess the importance of the record and case law in presenting effective arguments
