Tessa L. Dysart is the Assistant Director of Legal Writing and Clinical Professor of Law at the University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law. She also serves as the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Appellate Practice & Process [ journals.librarypublishing.arizona.edu ] , which was acquired by the University of Arizona Law in June 2020.
Professor Dysart writes and speaks nationally on appellate advocacy issues. With the Hon. Leslie H. Southwick of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, she co-authored the third edition of Winning on Appeal: Better Briefs and Oral Arguments [ www.nita.org ] . She manages the Appellate Advocacy Blog [ lawprofessors.typepad.com ] , which was added to the ABA’s list of best law blogs [ www.abajournal.com ] in 2018. Professor Dysart is a graduate of Willamette University and Harvard Law School. She clerked for the Hon. Dennis W. Shedd of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Her practice experience includes working for the United States Department of Justice Office of Legal Policy and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Professor Dysart will be discussing the book, Winning on Appeal: Better Briefs and Oral Argument . Originally authored by the late-Third Circuit Judge Ruggero Aldisert, Winning on Appeal , provides a nuts and bolts look at how to prepare an appeal. What sets it apart from other books is that it provides the judicial perspective. The book is replete with interviews from leading appellate judges (both state and federal) and practitioners on how best to win on appeal.
There is no cost for members to attend the meeting. The cost for non-members is $10.
