The newest issue of the Journal of Appellate Practice and Process

The old adage "better late than never" certainly applies to the latest issue of the Journal of Appellate Practice and Process. Here is a press release from NITA, our editing partner, announcing its release:

Journal of Appellate Practice and Process Publishes Summer 2023 Issue

LOUISVILLE, Colo., August 22, 2023 — The National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) and the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law (University of Arizona Law) have released the Summer 2023 issue of the influential Journal of Appellate Practice and Process. The issue features a selection of articles on appellate practice.

The issue opens with a look into tribal courts and the issues surrounding self-represented litigants, before moving onto articles that make a case for terminating the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces; examine the courts’ power to recall mandate and how recall can be used in habeas and post-conviction relief cases even after the passage of AEDPA; investigate whether better briefs and oral arguments impact how Supreme Court justices vote; expound on what judges want (and don’t want) to see in appellate opinions; and offer thoughts on writing a reply brief. Two book reviews on recent publications of interest to appellate practitioners round out the Summer issue.  

The issue’s contributors are Pamela C. Corley, Southern Methodist University; Adam Feldman, Optimized Legal Solutions Consulting; Eugene R. Fidell, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP; Elizabeth M. Fritz, University of Virginia School of Law (J.D.); Hon. Carrie E. Garrow, Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Court and Penobscot Nation Tribal Court; Hon. Gerald Lebovits, New York State Supreme Court; Hon. Danielle J. Mayberry, Te-Moak Tribal Court and Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Court; Hon. Douglas R. M. Nazarian, Appellate Court of Maryland; Susie Salmon, University of Arizona Law; and Brian Wolfman, Georgetown University Law Center.

Journal Editor-in-Chief and contributor Tessa L. Dysart said, “This issue continues the Journal’s practice of publishing interesting scholarship from a diverse set of authors. This issue truly represents how wide-ranging appellate-focused scholarship can be.” Dysart serves as the assistant director of legal writing and clinical professor of law at University of Arizona Law.
