It’s a Hard Knock Life For Us (Appellate Lawyers)
Originally Held: Jan. 18, 2024
Time: Noon to 1:30 p.m.
This webinar, which was sponsored by the State Bar of Michigan Appellate Practice Section and Plunkett Cooney, provided attendees with insights from the bench into the most important things NOT to do when trying to prevail before state and federal appellate courts. Call it the school of hard knocks, but it is better to learn these valuable lessons in our virtual classroom than in court when your clients are watching and every argument counts.
Plunkett Cooney attorney and webinar moderator Mary Massaron was joined by a distinguished panel of jurists, including Michigan Supreme Court Justice Megan K. Cavanagh, Fourth District Court of Appeals Judge Stephen L. Borrello and Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard A. Griffin. They spoke candidly and provided pragmatic suggestions about things you should avoid doing when drafting briefs or things you say while presenting oral arguments.
