Appellate Practice News

Posted on: May 25, 2017

By Stephen R. Creason, Office of the Attorney General

Following a two-year research initiative, the American Bar Association’s Council of Appellate Lawyers has released a comprehensive report on best practices for electronic briefs. The report surveys ways that courts and practitioners can make electronic briefs more useful by making them more than mere digital versions of paper briefs. Topics discussed in the report include readability, internal navigation, hyperlinks to external sources, and crafting court rules to match best practices. Download the free report direct from the ABA here.
