With the recent amendments to the appellate rules in April 2013, the Smith Moore Leatherwood Appellate Practice Group has updated its “North Carolina Rules of Appellate Procedure Checklist.” We publish the checklist as a guide for experienced and beginning appellate practitioners alike. The checklist provides a concise summary of deadlines and reminders for all aspects of appellate practice in the North Carolina courts. Of course, there is no substitute for the rules themselves, but we hope you find this checklist useful.

The updated version of the checklist can be found here.
