Description

From Moskovitz on Appeal: “I’m right on the law, so I’m sure to win my appeal.” This is The Great Myth. Young lawyers don’t know better; experienced lawyers should know better. But every appellate lawyer falls for the Myth at one time or another.

Join the ACBA Trial Practice Section to learn tips from Justice Stein and Mr. Moskovitz on how trial lawyers can create a record that sets up an appeal. Help appellate counsel protect your wins - and help them get your losses reversed.
