Dear Section Members:

Which Section of the Florida Bar was just featured in a front-page article of the Wall Street Journal? Read for yourself how the grammatical exploits of past chairs Duane Daiker and Sarah Lahlou-Amine punctuate why your Appellate Practice Section is the most-buzzworthy Section of our Bar! Click here to read the article.

To be a part of it, join us tomorrow! The first ever all virtual Florida Bar Annual Convention is underway, and your Appellate Practice Section served as standard bearer. The very first event Bar-wide was the Appellate Practice Section Pro Bono Committee Meeting, which drew over 30 people committed to the intersection of appellate law and pro bono services. Our CLE, Outreach, Diversity and Inclusion, and Publication Committees followed, each getting record numbers of attendees in the new virtual format, enabling practitioners to attend from anywhere. While we are hopeful for an in-person meeting soon, the heightened attendance has certainly been a legitimate silver lining.
