Here is the chance for you to travel to the sunshine state and brush up on you appellate advocacy skills (while the rest of the family hangs out at that Magic Kingdom place). DRI (the defense side of the civil trial bar) is putting on a two-day appellate advocacy seminar. More info on the DRI site and on The (New) Legal Writer Blog.
Unfortunately, Florida travel is not in my plans at the moment – but if you attend the seminar, drop me a note and let me know what you think. I occasionally teach CLE sessions on appellate advocacy and am always interested in hearing about what works and what does not work in the seminar setting.
