Appellate Practice in the Seventh Circuit

W
elcome to a series of programs about appellate practice in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The Seventh Circuit Bar Association has prepared video segments on the steps in an appeal that will be very helpful to many lawyers.
Each topic that you may encounter in appellate practice will have a separate segment and you will be able to listen to experts in the field on each of these matters as your appeal progresses. So if you are preparing for an oral argument, you click on the oral argument segment and you will hear from an appellate practitioner and a Circuit Judge on how to prepare for your argument and what to expect on the day you give it. We hope you will find these segments useful.
