  • After decades of speculation and anticipation, in 2018, the four departments of the Appellate Division enacted comprehensive rules that changed appellate practice in New York State. This program will provide a detailed overview of the new rules, including appeals requiring electronic filing, the implementation of the statewide practice rules of the appellate division, and individual department rules. An expert panel comprised of representatives from the Appellate Division and a seasoned appellate attorney will provide insight into the best practices for navigating these new changes.

    Live Program: $149 for Members | $249 for Nonmembers

    Members who are Recent Law Graduates (Not Yet Admitted), Newly Admitted Lawyers, In-House/Corporate Counsel, Judges (and their staff), or attorneys that practice within the Government, Academic or Not-for-Profit sectors attend this program for free.
