Program and Speaker:

You are a trial lawyer. You can cross-examine a witness into admitting things that even his shrink could not hypnotize out of him. Juries love you. Trial Judges smile at you. You win. You do not need an appellate lawyer's armchair litigating. Appeals are for losers, right? Maybe not completely...

 

Avoid the ethical mind fields as Dr. Ilonka Aylward will talk about top ten things every trial lawyer must know about appeals. 

 

Come learn about standards of review, unpublished opinion, mandamus petitions, substantial rights, and what really happens when one tries to appeal from an interlocutory order. 

 

Dr. Ilonka Aylward is a divorce and appellate lawyer, and the owner of Aylward Family Law. She runs a North Carolina appellate courts watch blog, http://www.familylawappealsnorthcarolina.com/
