Appellate Practice Section Monthly Telephonic CLE

Practicing Before the Second District

Friday, December 1, 2017
Hillsborough County Bar Association
Chester H. Ferguson Law Center
Tampa, Florida

This event is a can't-miss, full-day seminar for anyone who ever practices before the Second DCA. Hear from the Judges, Clerk, Marshal, and staff on how the court operates, how your cases are handled and decided, and what you should do to give your case the best chance on appeal. Presentations by local practicing attorneys will provide practical technology tips and tricks, and identify best practices for ethical, professional, and responsible appellate advocacy. Topics will address civil, criminal, and family appellate proceedings. Special guest Florida Supreme Court Justice Peggy Quince will provide a keynote address.

The CLE will be followed by a Judicial Reception at the local riverside hotspot, Ulele Restaurant & Brewery, located just across the street from the CLE location.

Price of admission includes both lunch and, later, cocktails at the Judicial Reception. Don't miss out!
