On Monday, May 20, 2013, I'll be speaking at the Hawaii State Bar Association's Appellate Law Section's monthly meeting, on "Amicus Briefing."
Sorry for the short notice, but I am a last-minute substitution since one of the original panelists, retired Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Steven Levinson, is under the weather and cannot attend. The other panelist is Daniel Gluck, a Senior Staff Attorney with ACLU Hawaii. Should be a fun and interesting discussion.
In my portion of the program, I'll be discussing the how's and why's, the do's and don't's of amicus participation in state and federal courts, with an emphasis on U.S. and Hawaii Supreme Court practice. We'll also be entertaining questions from the audience.
Because this is a late-hour pinch hit and I am on the road, I'll be appearing by video conference. Should make it even more interesting. For those of you who cannot attend in-person at the HSBA downtown Honolulu offices, we'll be using Gotomeeting, so maybe you can join in that way. Contact Appellate Law Section Chair Rebecca Copeland for more.
