You've successfully tried your case, but the other side files a Notice of Appeal. Your client wants you to defend the appeal. This has never happened to you before. What happens next? How do you preserve that victory for your client? Or you lost at trial and your client wants to appeal. How do you go about turning a loss into a win? Is getting the case overturned on appeal realistic?

This CLE is designed for trial lawyers who do not regularly practice in the appellate arena. Topics will include: whether to appeal or defend an appeal, the life of an appeal, general tips and traps, electronic filing and procedural differences between the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court. This two-hour program will be presented by Oregon Supreme Court Justice Jack Landau and Jona Maukonen of Harrang Long Gary Rudnick PC.
