Appellate Practice: How to Grab, Keep, and Kill the Panel’s Attention During Oral Argument
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 11:00 am – 12:00 pm Pacific
Delivering an effective oral argument depends on several factors—including the ability to deliver a strong opening, to concisely answer the panel’s questions, and to thread those answers back into your client’s points. In this Roundtable, hear from experienced appellate judges about what grabs their attention during oral argument, and about how attorneys can lose that attention.
Panelists include Judge Andre Davis, Senior Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit, and Judge Kem Frost, Chief Justice of the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in Houston, Texas. This Roundtable is moderated by Kate Galston of Degani & Galston LLP, with introductions by Angie Olalde of Greer, Herz & Adams L.L.P.
