CLE: Civil Appeal Basics—Handling an Appeal in the Illinois Appellate Court
Join us via live webcast from noon until 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26 for an in-depth overview of the steps involved in representing a party in an appeal before the Illinois Appellate Court.
All significant parts of the process are covered—from the commencement of the appeal through issuance of the Appellate Court decision and beyond. Attorneys with basic practice experience who have never handled an appeal (or have not handled an appeal since Illinois instituted mandatory e-filing) attending this seminar will better understand: obtaining or opposing a stay of enforcement in the circuit court; filing the notice of appeal in the circuit court; deciding whether to cross-appeal; requesting preparation of the record on appeal; filing the docketing statement in the Appellate Court; assuring that the record on appeal is complete; filing a supplemental record; determining what issues have been preserved for appeal; selecting the errors to advance; motions in the Appellate Court; drafting the opening brief; drafting the reply brief; preparing for oral argument; delivering oral argument; the Appellate Court decision; petitions for rehearing; the Appellate Court mandate and remand; and considering whether Illinois Supreme Court review may be available.
