Session 3: Overview and Tips on Drafting Trial and Appellate Briefs CLE


Whether they are written for a trial court or an appellate court, briefs require a different approach and type of writing from pleadings and motions.  Nicholas Tischler, Esq., whose practice is limited to appeals and motions, discusses the art and craft of briefing at all levels. This CLE offering includes 1.5 Skills Credits and a light lunch.


Presenter: Nicholas Tischler, Esq., Private Practitioner Specializing in Appeals

Nicholas Tischler was born in New York City and raised in the greater New York metropolitan area. He attended Northeastern University School of Law in Boston because of its commitment to practical legal education and high quality legal writing. After graduating law school he became an assistant district attorney with the Office of the Suffolk County District Attorney. Having gained significant experience in trial and appellate practice, in 1986 he started his own law practice, concentrating in appeals research and writing. Nick practiced on Long Island, in New York City and in Rhode Island before establishing his office in Niskayuna, New York.


In addition to his extensive appellate experience, Nick has been a member of the American Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association. He has served in the House of Delegates, as a District Vice President and on the Committee on Courts of Appellate Jurisdiction. He has also planned and taught numerous continuing legal education programs for lawyers on state and federal appellate practice. Additionally, he served as President of the Federation of Bar Associations for the Fourth Judicial District of New York, an organization of bar associations of northern New York. Nick maintains memberships in bar associations located throughout the State, including the New York City Bar Association, and the county bar associations of Suffolk, Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Rennselaer.


He has taught appellate practice at Albany Law School as an adjunct professor and has participated as a judge in appellate moot court competitions in the United States and abroad, including the International Criminal Court moot court competition sponsored by Leiden University in the Netherlands.  He also served on a panel of critical readers and practitioner contributors for Garner's Modern American Usage (Oxford University Press 2009) and Black's Law Dictionary (9th ed.)(West 2009).
