SoCal Appellate Events: Part II

The San Diego County Bar Association's Appellate Courts Committee, the Federal Bar Association, and Appellate Defenders, Inc. are presenting "How to Settle Your Case on Appeal in State or Federal Court."

4/1 Justice James McIntyre (left) and 9th Circuit Judge M. Margaret McKeown will discuss their courts' settlement procedures:  the 4/1's Voluntary Settlement Program and the Ninth Circuit Mediation Program.  A Q&A session will be moderated by certified appellate specialist Ed Silverman.

The event will take place Oct. 26 from 12 to 1:15 at the Bar Center, 1333 Seventh Ave., in San Diego.  It is BYO lunch:  $15 for SDCBA/ACC members, $20 for SDCBA/non-ACC members, and $45 for non-SDCBA members.  You can register at the SDCBA website.

Questions?  The SDCBA Appellate Courts Committee program chair is appellate lawyer (and former 4/1 research attorney!) Jennifer Hegemier.
