Appellate Mentor Training

June 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Appellate Feedback Training
This free training is invitation only

Thursday 6/3/21 10AM – 12:30PM
Thursday 6/10/21 10AM – 12PM

Providing feedback on appellate writing can be a challenge.  Where do I start?  How do I express my critiques in a productive yet supportive way?  How can I do this most efficiently and effectively?

This two-part virtual training will provide private counsel mentors and staff supervisors with strategies for how and when to give helpful feedback on appellate briefs.  The first day includes a hands-on session led by Suffolk Law School Professor Kathleen Vinson (https://www.suffolk.edu/academics/faculty/k/v/kvinson).  Between sessions, attendees will be asked to critique a very short mock brief.  On the second day, attendees will learn best practices for providing oral and written feedback, and then work in pairs to practice providing oral feedback on that mock brief.  The training will conclude with a panel of private counsel appellate mentors, where attendees can share common mentoring challenges and solutions.

Please contact your appellate panel director with any questions.
