Our fabulous panel—including Justice Kistler, Justice Landau, Judge Sercombe, Supreme Court Staff Attorney Lisa Norris-Lampe, and attorney Cody Hoesly—will discuss what Oregon appellate judges and staff attorneys like (and don’t like) to see when they read an e-brief. With practical demonstrations.

5:15-5:30 p.m. — A Brief Celebration of Justice Linder and Chief Judge Haselton. On the occasion of their upcoming retirements.
