Appellant's Brief (DC Circuit)
About this template
The appellant's brief is a legal document prepared by the party appealing a case to the United States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. This legal template serves as a written argument, presenting the appellant's position to the appellate court and lays out the reasons why they believe the lower court's decision was incorrect or unjust. The brief typically includes a statement of jurisdiction, a summary of the case's facts, a statement of the issues being appealed, a legal analysis of the errors made by the lower court, and a conclusion requesting the appellate court to reverse or modify the lower court's decision. It is an essential tool for the appellant's attorney to persuade the appellate court judges to rule in their favor.
