The Appellate Practice Section Is Headed to Washington D.C. — and You Are Invited!

Following up on the Section's successful and well-attended 2016 Key West retreat, the Section is excited to announce it will hold its next biannual retreat in Washington D.C. October 4-6, 2018. The Section's Executive Council meeting will occur in conjunction with the retreat. The hotel location remains to be determined and you'll be getting more information soon, but for now be sure and save the date. Given that Washington D.C. is the home of our three branches of federal government, opportunities abound for a very exciting agenda. If you have any programming ideas, retreat co-chairs Hala Sandridge and Tom Hall welcome your input.
