Appellate advocacy presents unique challenges and decisions for attorneys. Missouri Appellate Court Practice, now in its 5th edition, provides valuable guidance and answers. The authors go beyond setting out the substantive issues and procedural requirements so important to the appellate process; they draw on their vast experience to provide down-to-earth advice about everything from realistically assessing the chances for success on appeal to how to best present an exhibit during oral argument. Coverage includes the Supreme Court of Missouri, all three districts of the Missouri Court of Appeals, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. The 2013 cumulative supplement includes changes in the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals Local Rules, and the Eastern, Southern, and Western Districts of the Missouri Court of Appeals Special Rules. The supplement also includes new and updated forms, which are included on the 2013 Forms CD, caselaw, and new sections covering the electronic filing process in Missouri and extraordinary remedies in criminal cases—habeas corpus and mandamus.
