The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and law firm Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP are partnering together to present an upcoming CLE series for attorneys interested in appellate law.
The Appellate Strategies and Perspectives CLE series will provide attorneys with practical tips and tools, an analysis of emerging trends and issues in the field, and a judicial viewpoint on the practice in three sessions in 2013, each following a similar format.
Practitioners in the field will begin by discussing how to achieve success and avoid pitfalls at various stages of an appeal. Then, a panel of academics and legal observers will speak on contemporary issues affecting appellate practice. Finally, current or former judges will offer their perspective on the previous two topics or other areas of appellate practice.
The first seminar will take place on April 4. The seminar will include a presentation from Vorys appellate attorneys on the issues that an attorney must consider to succeed at the earliest stages of an appeal and a panel discussion with Moritz faculty on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and other campaign finance issues being considered by appellate courts. It also will include remarks from Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, of counsel in the Vorys Columbus office and retired Ohio Supreme Court justice.
