LIVE IN-PERSON ONLY SEMINAR

We are pleased to bring Advanced Appellate Practice back to the spectacular setting of the historic French Lick Hotel! Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Indiana, it is a grand backdrop for this year's event, as part of ICLEF’s Annual Masters Series Summer Conference.


This Live In-Person only program is designed as an advanced-level session for those practitioners who already have a fundamental understanding of the Appeals process. The discussion-oriented curriculum, led by Moderator Maggie Smith and her faculty, will take you deeper into tougher, more challenging matters. Bring your questions and toughest issues too, to share with the group.
