The Appellate Advocate

Twice a year, the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers (AAAL) publishes its newsletter, The Appellate Advocate. Each issue keeps Fellows abreast of AAAL strategic initiatives and policies, meeting details, award winners, Fellows in the news, decisions of interest to appellate lawyers, and more.

Take a look at the two latest issues of the Appellate Advocate to sample the information AAAL Fellows receive.

All issues are available only in PDF format. If you need the PDF reader, download it here:
