Volokh et al on working Appellate Practice

The ever-resourceful Eugene Volokh has recently had a number of posts on how to break into appellate practice – Breaking into Appellate Law and More on Breaking into Appellate Law, from a Sole Practitioner Appellate Lawyer Friend of Mine. Be sure to peruse the comments for some excellent insight as well.

Allow me to distill an overly-simplistic summary of the advice -

  1. Clerk, clerk, clerk.
  2. Write, write, write.
  3. Then beg, beg, beg your way onto appellate cases wherever you land right out of school.
