Attorneys Speak at IICLE/ALA Civil Appeals Practice Institute


Craig Unrath, Brad Elward and Stacy Crabtree were featured speakers at the Civil Appeals Practice Institute in Chicago on November 5. The event was sponsored by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE) and co-sponsored by the Appellate Lawyers' Association (ALA). Stacy spoke on how to preserve errors throughout trial for appeal; Elward spoke on procedures for obtaining stays and surety bonds; and Unrath spoke on recognizing final judgments and the effective use of Rule 304(a) appeals. Elward also served as the event coordinator and co-moderator. All three of the attorneys have authored chapters in the recently released IICLE Civil Appeals volume. The event was billed as an advanced appellate practice seminar.
