Appellate Court practitioners, we've pulled together a CLE package just for you.  This bundle includes the following online seminars.

  • Beautiful Briefs in the Digital Age (1 general)

As more judges and practitioners use tablets and e-readers to do their work, it becomes more and more incumbent on writers to consider how their briefs look. A writer’s careful attention to certain style choices can go a long way toward improving a reader’s ability to digest a brief’s content and understand its most important points.

This aspect of law practice has been a focus for this program’s two presenters. In particular, Indiana Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Slaughter can provide important insight on this topic and can explain what techniques make a brief the most reader-friendly and impactful. No matter your level of substantive writing skill, this program offers something new to consider and incorporate into your practice.

Featuring: Hon. Geoffrey G. Slaughter, Indiana Supreme Court; Christopher J. Bayh, Barnes & Thornburg LLP

  • Summary Judgment Trends and Tips Post-Hughley (1 general)

Summary judgment motions are a core aspect of any civil litigation practice, particularly for a civil defense practice. Since the Indiana Supreme Court handed down its decision in Hughley v. State of Indiana, trial courts and appellate courts appear to be more reluctant to grant or affirm summary judgment. This seminar discusses developing trends in summary judgment case law post-Hughley and offer tips for summary judgment practice and appeal.

Featuring: Bryan H. Babb, Bose McKinney & Evans LLP; Libby Yin Goodknight, Krieg DeVault LLP

  • Appellate Roundtable (1 general)

Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steven David and Judge Elizabeth Tavitas from the Indiana Court of Appeals come together to talk about a wide range of issues affecting appellate practice in Indiana that you need to know about before stepping foot into an appellate court.

Featuring: Hon. Steven David, Indiana Supreme Court; Hon. Elizabeth Tavitas, Indiana Court of Appeals
