Colorado Appellate Advocacy Deskbook
is a comprehensive reference guide that takes appellate advocates beyond the Colorado Appellate Rules, delving into the substantial body of case law that interprets and explains them. In providing a thorough discussion of the case law, the book gives attorneys a factual context to accompany the appellate procedural requirements. Practitioners will learn to avoid procedural pitfalls that can prevent a successful appeal on the merits, and will be able to consider and deal creatively with objections that may preclude appellate relief.
The wide variety of topics discussed includes civil and criminal appeals; the internal procedures of the Colorado Court of Appeals and the Colorado Supreme Court for ruling on motions and deciding cases; appeals directly to the Court of Appeals from administrative agencies, including the Industrial Claim Appeals Office; the Supreme Court’s certiorari and Rule 21 jurisdiction; and appeals from county courts to district courts. In addition, appellate advocates will gain numerous tips and techniques for effective brief writing and oral argument.
This book will guide attorneys through the complexities of Colorado appellate practice and procedure, and will help both frequent and occasional appellate advocates protect their issues on appeal. Colorado Appellate Advocacy Deskbook includes the annotated Colorado Appellate Rules, as well as current case law with detailed discussion, expert analysis, and sample forms.
