This is just a reminder that the New Mexico State Bar’s 24th Annual Appellate Practice Institute will be held tomorrow (November 22) at the New Mexico State Bar’s offices in Albuquerque.
The program looks spectacular:
- Judge Stephanie Seymour of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit will discuss her experience on that court.
- Justice Barbara Vigil of the New Mexico Supreme Court, and Judge Linda Vanzi of the New Mexico Court of Appeals will discuss what it’s like to go from being a district court judge to serving on an appellate court.
- Ed Ricco and Sue Herrmann will give their annual update on developments in New Mexico appellate practice.
- Alice Lorenz and Margaret Caffey-Moquin will discuss supersedeas bonds.
- Present candidate for the New Mexico Court of Appeals, Kerry Kiernan, and Larry Montaño of Holland & Hart, will give a presentation about preservation of error in bench trials.
- Steve Tucker and Mark Hirsch will give a talk called “The Ethics of Wearing Two Hats – Original and Appellate Jurisdiction.”
- And finally, you can learn everything you could possibly want to know about docketing statements and petitions for certiorari from Paul Fyfe, chief of the New Mexico Court of Appeals’ Prehearing Division, Andrew Montgomery, and Nancy L. Simmons.
