Based on a survey of our members conducted two years ago, the new Arizona Appellate Handbook 2.0 has been revised and improved to make it a better resource. Instead of each individual practice area repeating the same information, it now uses a “hub and spoke” approach.

These include: preparing for an appeal; filing an appeal as of right with the Arizona Court of Appeals; special actions; critical aspects of appeals including motion practice on appeal, the appellate record, standards of review, appellate briefs, amicus curiae practice and oral argument; and decisions and post-decision proceedings in the Arizona Court of Appeals, and practice before the Arizona Supreme Court. Six additional chapters address special considerations in specific types of appeals: civil, criminal, family, juvenile, workers’ compensation, and election appeals
Volume Two addresses the forms of review that take place outside of the Arizona Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. These include: conducting judicial review under the Administrative Review Act and the Administrative Procedure Act; proceedings before the OAH; special actions filed in superior court; and special considerations associated with appeals from particular agencies
