The U.S. Supreme Court, the Circuit Courts, State Supreme Courts - these are hallowed halls that make final decisions about where American jurisprudence is going next. Who are the women who appear and argue before these courts? What is it like to prepare for an oral argument or finalize your first appellate brief? If practicing appellate law is your goal, what are the steps you should take to get there? Our distinguished panelists who practice appellate law in a variety of offices throughout Washington, DC will give you their insights and tell a few stories from their experiences along the way.
