Appellate Skills Development Subcommittee

People jumping through a cliff one by one

The Appellate Skills Development Subcommittee is designed to engage and involve less-experienced appellate lawyers who may wish to develop their appellate skill set, professional networks, and in some states credit toward specialist certification by preparing pro bono amicus briefs on behalf of the DRI Center for Law and Public Policy. These amicus briefs would be prepared under the mentorship of a more experienced appellate lawyer and would be in cases assigned by the Center’s Amicus Committee often in conjunction with a state and local defense organization.

Membership on the subcommittee is limited and you must be a member of DRI and its Appellate Advocacy Committee to be selected for the Appellate Skills Development Subcommittee.
