Appellate Practice & Procedure
B671 is taught by Castanias, T. Fisher
Appellate Practice and Procedure, co-taught by two experienced appellate and U.S. Supreme Court practitioners and scholars, will teach the substance, procedure, and strategies peculiar to appellate and U.S. Supreme Court litigation. Few law students leave school with much exposure to Federal Appellate Procedure, and this course is designed to fill that gap in traditional legal education. It is an ideal capstone for students who plan to embark on a career in litigation, as well as students going on to appellate clerkships. The class is open to 2Ls and 3Ls. Grades will be based on a combination of single seminar paper due at the end of the semester as well as class participation.
