Initial Steps When Handling an Appeal: Spotting Issues with the Notice of Appeal and the Certificate of Probable Cause

The initial step in handling any appeal is to check the notice of appeal and, in guilty plea cases, the certificate of probable cause. In this presentation, CCAP Staff Attorneys Siena Kautz and Brad Bristow will discuss what judgments and orders are appealable, the requirements for the notice of appeal, the requirements for the certificate of probable cause in guilty plea cases (and what claims may still be raised after a guilty plea or admission), and requesting relief when there are errors related to the notice of appeal or certificate of probable cause.

The webinar will be on Zoom on March 29, 2023 at noon to 12:45 p.m. Advance registration is required. Please register for the webinar here.
