Brad Pauley becomes Chair of the ABA’s Council of Appellate Lawyers.
May 6, 2015
Horvitz & Levy LLP partner Brad Pauley recently became Chair of the ABA’s Council of Appellate Lawyers, the only national bench-bar group devoted exclusively to appellate advocacy. In his role as Chair of the 400-member Council, Brad heads its Executive Board and serves on the boards of both the ABA’s Appellate Judges Conference (of which the Council is a constituent part) and the Appellate Judges Education Institute (AJEI), a non-profit corporation devoted to providing nationwide continuing legal education to appellate judges, lawyers, and staff attorneys.
As Chair, Brad is also responsible for overseeing the Council’s many endeavors. These include planning speaking programs for the ABA’s Midyear and Annual Meetings, as well as preparing for the AJEI’s annual four-day appellate summit, which will be held this year in Washington, D.C. in November. Brad also supervises the Council’s publication efforts, such as the production of its newsletter, Appellate Issues, and its various book projects, including the Appellate Practice Compendium. In addition, the Council has been active this year providing comments regarding the controversial proposed changes to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 32, which would reduce the word limits for federal appellate briefs.
