Last Friday, the N.C. Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section put on a fabulous CLE.  Leading judges and practitioners offered insights into recent developments in substantive and procedural appellate law, challenged us to think through the ethical implications that inhere in many appellate cases, and peeled back the curtain on how cases are managed by the clerks of court.

Beth and I were honored to present at the CLE on the topic of the hidden traps and statutory lacunae that threaten to derail even the most careful appellate lawyer.  Our discussion was guided by a detailed slideshow, which we attach here for your reference.

As always, let us know in the comments if you have ideas about any of the pitfalls sketched out in the slides.
