About The Appellate Practice Compendium

Wouldn't it be great to possess an insiders knowledge of how an appellate court operates -- to move past published rules and academic treatises to get a practical understanding of how business is really done in that court?

Now you can get that insiders perspective in a remarkable treatise that canvasses almost every appellate court in the country:
  • All fifty state appellate courts  intermediate and of last resort
  • D.C. courts
  • All federal circuit courts
  • U.S. Military Appellate Court
  • Supreme Court of the United States

The Appellate Practice Compendium is written by leading appellate counsel, each with decades of experience practicing in the referenced courts. For example, David Frederick shares his inside knowledge of practicing before the Supreme Court of the United States. Each author does the same, providing practical insights into how appeals are handled in that court. Its like having a stable of appellate gurus explaining what you really need to know -- covering more than sixty courts!

You'll find all the information you need to plan your appeal anywhere in the country. This handy compendium first includes insider tips for out-of-state practitioners on the use of video recordings, access to appellate records, page limits, oral arguments, abstracts, deadlines, addendums, formatting, and much, much more.

In addition, you'll find a complete list of appellate resources for every jurisdiction, including websites, dockets, practice guides, and more. There are also sections on admission to practice and representation to counsel, a comprehensive outline of each appellate court system, a step-by-step guide to commencing the appeal, and sections on record composition, motions, briefs and oral arguments.

Be ready for any appeal anywhere in the United States with this practical, one
