This seminar is an ideal introduction into practice in the Fifth Circuit.  Attendees will observe an actual oral argument and learn from Appellate Judges what they consider to be effective oral argument and brief writing practices.  You will also gain valuable insight into the workings of the Fifth Circuit from professionals in each department.

There is also a two hour writing workshop to help hone your writing skills.  Since over 70% of cases in the Fifth Circuit are decided on the briefs, this may be your only opportunity at convincing the judges of your position.
