Appellate Practice News

Posted on: Nov 28, 2017

Happy Holidays! The Appellate Practice Section has had a great year!  

Our moot court program, the Indiana Appellate Institute, has continued to assist lawyers in preparing for oral arguments in the Indiana Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. Thank you to all who have served as volunteer judges—your time and talent is very much appreciated. Feedback from the participants has been overwhelmingly positive. Take a look at this video here to see just how valuable the Institute can be for advocates!

This year, we have offered diverse CLE programs, including the recent “Appeals for Rookies” and the annual Appellate Roundtable featuring Justice Slaughter and Judge Barnes.  

We were pleased to award the Jill Ellis Scholarship to Victoria Bailey of the Marion County Public Defender Agency to attend the Appellate Judges Education Institute 2017 Summit from November 2-5 in Long Beach, CA. Take a look here for details on her experience.

Looking ahead, on January 17, 2018, our section will be hosting a reception in honor of Indiana Supreme Court Justice Christopher Goff at the Morris-Butler House. Please keep an eye on the IndyBar events calendar in the coming weeks for details. We hope to see you there!
