Professional Judgment on Appeal starts with the simple fact that the overwhelming majority of appeals, both civil and criminal, fail. Looking at this poor track record, the book focuses on the need for lawyers to sift the winning appeals from the losing appeals and advise clients accordingly. With a thematically tight focus on the tools of professional case evaluation, Wisotsky helps the lawyer to answer the ultimate question in every case: can this appeal succeed and on what grounds? This book is designed to aid all members of the legal profession: lawyers, judges, students, and professors. It builds upon the basics taught in law school, but goes far beyond to fill notable gaps in the knowledge of most attorneys. The second edition updates the first edition from 2002 with current rules, statutes and cases. It also adds new chapters on Extraordinary Writs and Ethical Dimensions of Appellate Practice.
