Appellate Practice

POSTPONED: Federal Appellate Forum 2020



***TBA CLE has been closely monitoring how COVID-19 will impact TBA events. After much consideration, the TBA has made the decision to postpone and reschedule this event.

We did not make this decision lightly, but feel it's in the best interest of our presenters, members, attendees and staff at this uncertain time. As soon as a new date is determined, we will inform you. Please continue to visit our website for up-to-date information on the health concern and TBA events and meetings.***

This CLE opportunity will focus on the intangibles when considering an appeal in federal court. We will be joined by Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Judges Jane Stranch, John Bush and John Rogers who will provide an interactive panel to address best practices for appeals at that level. The program will also feature civil and criminal case law updates, how to make the most out of an oral argument, writing an effective brief and more. Don't miss this opportunity to join judges and colleagues for this unique first-year forum.
