Chair's Message

Dear Section Members,

September has been an eventful month, to say the least. My main hope as I write this message, just days after Hurricane Irma left our state, is that our members are safe and secure and have or will have creature comforts (like air conditioning!) restored quickly.

We squeezed in what we could at the 2017 DCA Judges Conference before adjourning the event early so members could prepare for the hurricane. Thank you to the justices and judges who invited us to participate and to all the members who attended and helped make the event a success.

APS Logo Design Contest

Calling all appellate attorneys! The Appellate Practice Section is in need of a logo, and we would love your help! Limited artistic ability and no graphic design experience necessary!

At the moment, the Section uses The Florida Bar seal on all of our correspondence. How boring.

The Section needs its own logo to define who we are and what we represent as appellate attorneys in the great state of Florida. The new logo will be used for the foreseeable future on all electronic media, print, and giveaway items at events. The Florida Bar has graphic designers that will help us hone the final product, but it is our members who really understand what our section is about and know what should go into our brand.

The Record is Now Online!

The Appellate Practice Section of The Florida Bar is pleased to bring you The Record in a new online format. The Premier publication about all things Appellate is now easier to read with more timely submissions. We are also in the process of uploading selected articles from archived editions of The Record, so they will be searchable and available there. Click here to check out The Record Online!
