A reminder: on Tuesday, Mr. DeCicco will be conducting an orientation session for new appellate counsel. While the session is specifically geared for newbies, I found last year’s to be quite useful for those with more experience as well. The session will in CAAF’s courtroom starting at 0900.
The Judge Advocates Association and CAAF will once again be presenting an appellate advocacy symposium. Here’s a link to the flyer. This year’s symposium will be held on 3 October at the George Mason University School of Law from 0830 to 1600.
The headline act alone is worth the price of admission ($60): former CAAF Chief Judge Walter T. Cox III will be speaking about effective appellate advocacy. Judge Cox was a fabulous judge and is quite the raconteur, so his presentation is not to be missed. Also on the schedule is Robert P. Charrow talking about effective legal writing, a military justice update from TJAGLCS’s faculty, a panel of CCA judges, and moi.
