Preparing Appeal Briefs and Excerpt of Record (Print-Version) PDF

Writing a brief

Writing the appeal brief is a very important part of the process. This is the stage where you need to do legal research to figure out how to support your arguments. You need to organize your information and present your arguments clearly and concisely. The appeal briefs must contain all of the sections and formatting required by the Appellate Rule 212 PDF. Finally, make sure you file the appeal briefs within the deadlines and serve the other side with copies as required by Appellate Rule 212.
