The Hidden Essentials of Appellate Practice

Friday, February 10, 2017 - 8:30am-4:00pm

Are you seeking Appellate Practice Certification or recertifying in 2017?

The Appellate Practice Section has decided to alternate its traditional annual certification review course with a new live CLE called The Hidden Essentials of Appellate Practice, which is scheduled for February 10, 2017 in Tampa at the Hillsborough County Bar Association Building. This new full day CLE is approved for certification credit and will cover many topics that may appear on the certification exam, such as: The Ins and Outs of Appellate Jurisdiction; The Unwritten Rules of Appellate Practice; Use and Effect of Key Appellate Doctrines; Differences between State and Federal Appeals; and Preservation of the Record. There will be a lunchtime panel discussion with Second District Court of Appeal Judges Khouzam, Badalamenti, and Rothstein-Youakim. For those who attend in person, there will be a bonus ethics hour. It will include a roundtable discussion on #ModernAppellateEthics.

Board Certification Bootcamp

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, Two Hour Webinar

The Section will also offer a 2017 update to last year's certification course via a two-hour webinar on February 21, 2017 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, called Board Certification Bootcamp, which will be taught by Celene Humphries and Hala Sandridge, and will cover a range of updates that may appear on the certification exam, including criminal appeals and new local federal appellate rules. The webinar is in lieu of the Section's February Telephonic CLE. If you have already pre-registered for the entire 2016-17 Telephonic CLE series, there will be no additional charge to attend the live webinar with a bonus hour of CLE. Those who have yet to register for the February Telephone CLE may do so by completing the registration form. The Section also intends to offer the webinar for later purchase via CD or On-Demand.

Please mark your calendars for these two new fantastic CLEs, and please visit the Florida Bar's On-Demand catalogue for additional courses. If you have any questions, please contact the Section's CLE Chair, Chris Donovan at cdonovan@ralaw.com.
