Florida Appellate Courts (2 credits)

This course provides an overview of Florida’s appellate courts, including their history; their organization and structure; their jurisdiction, including areas of the Florida Supreme Court’s exclusive jurisdiction; rulemaking authority; original actions; and other topics. We will also explore ethical issues related to appellate practice. This course is not just for students who are interested in pursuing an appellate practice. Many of the topics will be useful in other litigation contexts or even for those who anticipate non-litigation practices.
