Additional Event Information

The Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia invites prosecutors to attend the Effective Written Advocacy Webinar on Thursday, May 21, 2020 from 10:00am to 11:00am. This webinar is part of the Appellate Track for the week which includes three separate webinars. Each of these webinars offer 1 CLE hour each.

Description of Training:

Oral arguments may be the "glamorous" side of appeals, but effective written arguments are the bedrock of appellate advocacy. In this webinar, we will explore how to take your appellate briefs from "good enough to pass a Legal Research and Writing class" to "good enough to defend a conviction." At the end of the hour, attendees will understand the three pillars of effective legal writing, have a toolbox of writing and organizational "tips" based on what our appellate courts want to see in briefs, and understand how to use organization and style to maximize the impact of their arguments.

Speaking on this topic will be the Honorable Todd Hayes, Solicitor-General of Cherokee County, and Mr. Sam d'Entremont, Assistant District Attorney from the Gwinnett Judicial Circuit. 

CLE/POST/Advocate Credit 
CLE: Please note the CLE credit will fall under the in-house/self-study rule. The rule has a six hour maximum on CLE credits (increased to 12 for 2019). A webinar falls in the same category as a video review. The supreme Court of Georgia allowed ALL 2019 CLE hours to be completed by approved in-house or distance learning seminars. The deadline for this is April 30, 2020. If you are requesting CLE hours, there is a $4 charge. Please mail the CLE form and the check to PAC. A copy of the CLE form will be provided in your email confirmation.

POST: Unfortunately POST credit is not available for this course. You are welcome to attend, but you will not receive credit.

Advocate: Unfortunately this topic does not apply to victim services, therefore no credit is available. We will not be able to issue a certificate. You are welcome to attend, but you will not receive credit.
