How To Become a Supreme Court Practitioner

By Lawrence S. EbnerJanuary 27, 2019

I am pleased to announce that I will be moderating a panel entitled ‘You Too Can Be a Supreme Court Practioner: Redefining ‘The Supreme Court Bar.’ This CLE panel, to be held in Chicago on July 19, will be part of the annual Appellate Advocacy Seminar sponsored by DRI-The Voice of the Defense Bar. Our lively, interactive panel will cover the nuts-and-bolts of developing, promoting, and conducting a U.S. Supreme Court practice. Panelists will include Kim Proxmire, Legal Marketing & Brand Strategy Consultant, Indigo Marketing Group; Karen Pierangeli, President, Byron S. Adams, Legal & Commercial Printers; and Matt Nelson, Partner & Chair of the Appellate & Supreme Court practice at Warner Norcross + Judd LLP.

The real Supreme Court Bar is not limited to the small number of talented, high-profile lawyers who repeatedly appear before the Court at oral arguments. As discussed in my September 2018 “Appellate Brief” blog, The REAL Supreme Court Bar, it also is composed of hundreds of well-qualified appellate specialists from around the United States who handle the bulk of Supreme Court work—preparation of certiorari petiitons and oppositions, merits briefs, and amicus briefs—as well as represent clients at oral arguments.

Seminar registration information can be obtained from DRI.
