2014 Appellate Almanac: Submissions Requested

As chair of the Appellate Practice Section, I invite section members to contribute to the 2014 Appellate Almanac.  The section is looking for articles, stories, or interesting data on the Oregon appellate courts or Oregon-related cases in the federal appellate courts.  Academic articles, profiles, funny stories, or the real reason digital clocks mysteriously appeared on the podiums overnight are all welcome additions to this year’s almanac.
If you are interested in contributing this year, please contact me directly.  If you need some inspiration from authors past, prior almanacs are available on the section’s website and provide myriad examples of submissions suitable for publication.  I hope to hear from you!

Willamette University Moot Court is gearing up for the last three competitions this academic year. The university is seeking volunteer attorneys to judge one or more nights of competition.

Volunteer time may be eligible for CLE credits.

The three competitions are scheduled for:

  • Civil Trial Competition: January 21 through 24
  • Appellate Competition: February 18 through 22
  • First-Year Appellate Competition: March 19 through 22

Competitions start 6:00 pm and go until about 8:30 pm. Dinner is provided at 5:30 pm for all judges. If you are interested in volunteering please respond via email to Annabel Defty,Moot Court Judges Chair .

I volunteered last year.  The food is great, the competition sharp.  It’s definitely worth the time.
