Advocacy Before the Eleventh Circuit: A Clerk’s Perspective
Miami Law Review
Jessica Arden Ettinger & Kevin Golembiewski
Appellate attorneys must tailor their advocacy to the court hearing their appeal. Each court of appeals has different jurisprudence, rules, traditions, and decision-making processes. Yet there are few articles on appellate advocacy tailored to a particular court. We wrote this article to help fill that gap. As former law clerks for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, we offer advice specifically for attorneys who practice before the Eleventh Circuit. Our advice is based on our experiences as clerks, as well as our analysis of the Eleventh Circuit’s rules, procedures, and public statistics. We offer no inside information about the Court but rather our personal views on how to draft a compelling brief and present a persuasive oral argument.
