NYCLA To Replay Seminar On Preserving The Record For Appeal

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 00:00

The New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA) has scheduled a video replay of a CLE seminar titled Breakfast With NYCLA - Protecting and Preserving the Record for Appellate Review.

The program will take place on Friday, January 18 from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at the NYCLA Home of Law, 14 Vesey Street, New York City.

Attendees can expect to learn: how to conduct motion practice to protect their client's appellate rights; how to ensure that the transcript reflects what goes on in the courtroom; how to make an offer of proof that will preserve the issue of the court's refusal to admit evidence; how to word a protest to ensure that an objection actually preserves the issue for appeal, and how to handle requests and exceptions to charge so that the record is protected.

The faculty will include Laura R. Johnson, assistant solicitor general, NY Attorney General's Office; Paul F. McAloon, Paul F. McAloon, P.C.; James O'Sullivan, Fiedelman & McGaw; Jay Weiner, senior principal law clerk, Appellate Division, NY 2nd Department, and the Hon. Richard C. Wesley, judge, U.S. Court of Appeals, 2nd Circuit.
