The Association will host two events during the next month. On March 10, 2016, the ALA's annual roundtable luncheon featuring the justices of the Illinois Appellate Court, First District, will be held at the Union League Club in Chicago. Space permitting, attendees will enjoy lunch with an individual justice, as each jurist will be seated at a separate table. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to ask the justices for tips and practice pointers in a casual and cordial atmosphere. Attendees will receive 1 hour of MCLE credit.
On March 18, 2016, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the Association will host a half-day advanced appellate practice seminar at the Chicago Bar Association. The seminar will feature various seasoned appellate practitioners, including ALA President and former Illinois Solicitor General Michael A. Scodro and past ALA president Michael W. Rathsack, among others. Topics will include discretionary appeals, motion practice before reviewing courts, post-judgment practice in anticipation of an appeal, petitions for leave to appeal, and appeal bonds. The seminar will also feature a mock oral argument. Attendees will receive 3.75 hours of MCLE credit.
