Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals Academy

Event Types: 
CLE Programming
Date: 
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 - 8:15am

The Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals is unfamiliar territory for most lawyers. Opportunities to practice in this court are few, and success requires skills of both 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 both 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.
