We blogged a few weeks ago about the VSB’s free appellate CLE on October 19th in Richmond. Monica tells me that the CLE has reached capacity, and is now turning away registrants. For those lucky enough to get in, the program promises to be a treat. It will open with an hour-long discussion of effective oral advocacy in Virginia’s appellate courts. Next, Senior Justice Lacy will present the judicial perspective on oral argument, and the CLE will close with a mock oral argument.
If you didn’t sign up in time, you’re in good company. I won’t be able to make it, either, being once again tied up at my day job. I’ll do my best to provide a useful second-hand write up, although I will be in trial most of next week.
