Research Attorney Panel at the State Bar Meeting

The State Bar Annual Meeting kicks off tomorrow.  OK, technically it tees off today with a charity golf event.  But the CLE programs start tomorrow. 

The afternoon offers "Inside the Appellate Courts:  Insights from Research Attorneys." 

The panel includes:
In addition to sharing our tips on brief writing and oral argument, we'll discuss the role of the research attorney in the appellate court's processing of appeals.  We'll pull back the curtain and let you in on:
  • At what stage we get involved in a case
  • How we approach an appeal
  • How we interact with the justices
  • How the court uses our work
  • How the Supreme Court handles petitions for review
And, of course, we'll be happy to take your questions.  Hope to see you there!
