Welcome to the Appellate Advocacy LibGuide. Many steps support a successful appeal including thorough research; precise and competent writing; and persuasive oral advocacy skills. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor put it best when she stated: "Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at that time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom." We hope this resource will further support you with those important tasks which are necessary in appellate advocacy.
