BAFFC Events

On October 3 and 4, 2022, the Bar Association of the Fifth Federal Circuit with the Mississippi College School of Law and the University of Mississippi Law Center will present the 2022 Appellate Advocacy Seminar in New Orleans.

Cost is $300.00/$200.00 (government rate) for 10 hours of Continuing Legal Education, including an hour of Professionalism and an hour of Ethics.

We are honored to have Fifth Circuit Judges Stephen A. Higginson, James C. Ho and Cory T. Wilson share their insights on how you can better prepare your brief and oral argument, as well as how your appeal gets processed.

In addition to a two-hour writing workshop, there will be an advanced legal writing presentation from Tenth Circuit Judge Robert Bacharach. You will have the opportunity to observe oral arguments at the John Minor Wisdom Courthouse and get practical advice on appellate practice from the Court and seasoned attorneys. There will updates on criminal practice, civil practice, and current issues before the Supreme Court.
