The Journal of Appellate Practice and Process


From the Library is a new section in The Journal that will reprint the best that has been written about appellate practice and the appellate process. The first piece features timeless advice about oral argument by John W. Davis. Davis was a country lawyer, law teacher, state legislator and congressman, Solicitor General of the United States, Ambassador to the Court of St. James's, Democratic candidate for President in 1924, and managing partner of a New York City law firm.
