Proposed Amendments Published for Public Comment

When an advisory committee recommends an amendment to its rules or forms, it must obtain the approval of the
Judicial Conference Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure to publish the proposed amendment for
public comment. During the comment period, the public is encouraged to submit written comments and may also
request to testify at public hearings on the proposed amendment.

On June 25, 2019, the Judicial Conference Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure
approved publication of proposed amendments to the following:

  • Appellate Rules 3, 6, 42, and Forms 1 and 2;
  • Bankruptcy Rules 2005, 3007, 7007.1, and 9036; and
  • Civil Rule 7.1.

The comment period is open from August 19, 2019 to February 19, 2020. Read the text of the proposed amendments and supporting materials:

Welcome 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.
