The Tennessee Court of Appeals is unfamiliar territory for most lawyers. Opportunities to practice in this court are few and success requires skills of oral and written advocacy. A persuasive performance in both areas is important to success; a poor performance in either can lead to defeat. Accordingly, lawyers need the information and insight required to develop and perfect their oral arguments and legal writing. Indeed, this is true at all levels of legal practice, and the lessons learned during this seminar will be generally applicable to practice in trial courts.

At the Tennessee Court of Appeals Boot Camp, lawyers will learn from a distinguished faculty and through observation of oral arguments. This seminar will cover the best practices for oral argument, common mistakes made, and standards of review.
