Appellate Practice

Large corporate defendants have a simple motto: while we often lose cases at trial, we almost always win them on appeal. The Appellate Practice Litigation Group will provide members with the tools, techniques, and information to reverse this trend and successfully follow their cases through appeal. The group will serve as a forum to discuss all issues related to appellate practice. To aid members, the group will create a document library containing appellate motions, oral argument transcripts, and briefs. The Group also intends to offer AAJ Education programs. The cochairs of the Group are Collyn A. Peddie of Houston, TX and Sharon L. Van Dyck of Saint Louis, MN. The Appellate Practice Litigation Group was formed in October 2008.

  • Meetings: The group meets at AAJ Annual and Winter conventions.
  • Membership: The group is limited to AAJ Regular, Life, Sustaining, and President’s Club member only.
  • Annual Dues: No dues

Chair
