The 3Ps of Criminal Appeals: Procedure, Process, and Practice

In Virginia, a defendant who has been convicted of a crime has the right to seek a higher court’s review of the decision and sentence. However, many procedural requirements attach to these direct appeals, from time limits to transcript requests. The failure to satisfy these requirements may consequently affect the outcome of the appeal, before a review on its merits may even be reached.

Catherine French, Chief Appellate Counsel for the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission, and Cullen Seltzer, SandsAnderson, will lead this Law Over Lunch CLE presentation on the nuts and bolts of criminal appellate practice in Virginia. An opportunity for attorneys who attend this training to become involved in the Carrico Center’s Pro Bono Criminal Appeals program will also be shared.
