The dispositional language controls the appellate outcome and all proceedings on remand, but most appellate briefs overlook it. An appellate justice and an appellate court attorney will explain civil and criminal dispositional options and offer sample language. The presentation will equip attorneys to request precise dispositional language that best serves their client in order to maximize wins, control losses, and minimize time and expense in proceedings on remand. Is an unqualified reversal (an a new trial) really best for the client? Or would reversal with directions for limited proceedings on remand be better? Or is it possible to get a reversal directing the final disposition? Or will the court modify and affirm the judgment with no further trail court hearing on remand? Can the disposition include restitution for losses caused by erroneous judgment or order? This course will answer these questions and prepare practitioners to ask for what they really want on appeal.
