Course Outline: This course goes beyond the normal brief writing and oral argument currently taught in the Appellate Advocacy class and truly qualifies as advanced appellate advocacy in the real world.
The class would focus on the not infrequently encountered situation where the briefing has already been done by non-appellate specialists before the appellate specialist is ever hired. In other words, the appellate specialist is hired to handle the case after the briefing is completed but before the oral argument is presented, so the appellate specialist could only present the oral argument and then maybe, if the opportunity arises, file a post-submission brief. The challenge is that in this situation the briefs drafted by the non-appellate specialist frequently do not present the best arguments or offer the best chance for the client to win on appeal.
