ON DEMAND: Appeals: How the Court Process Works

Class recorded April 1, 2020

An appeal is very different from trial court proceedings. There are many misconceptions about how appeals work and what the appellate courts will consider.  Learn what an appeal is, the steps to take to appeal a trial court decision and the importance of the concept of harmful, judicial error.

Class covers:

  • Appellate court structure
  • How the appellate court reviews the trial court’s decision
  • Steps to appeal
  • The limits of appellate review
  • Designating the record
