New Style for Spring: Updated Appellate Style Manual
An updated version of the Appellate Style Manual was recently published by the Bar Association’s Appellate Rules Committee. This useful resource provides sample documents and practical notes for drafting records on appeal, briefs, writs, and other appellate pleadings. While it is not a substitute for careful review of the N.C. Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Style Manual is an excellent road map for North Carolina lawyers navigating the complexities of the state appellate courts.
Revisions included in latest Appellate Style Manual include:
