Vol. 21, Issue 1 of the Journal of Appellate Practice & Process

I have been an errant blogger.  Of the many projects occupying my time, getting out the most recent issue of The Journal of Appellate Practice & Process has been near the top of the list.  I am happy to say that the issue is almost done and will hopefully be online this week.

When the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law acquired the Journal, one of our goals was to make it a free online resource. The Journal will be available at At that site, you can sign up to receive email notifications about new issues. While we don't yet have the full archives up, we hope to have them soon.

What can you expect in the first digital issue of the Journal? Well, the articles are pretty exciting and timely.  Here is a sneak peak at the table of contents:
