Graham K. Bryant
BYRNE CANAAN LAW
During its 2021 session, the General Assembly passed landmark legislation establishing appeals of right to the Court of Appeals of Virginia in nearly every case, civil or criminal. Join Graham Bryant for a discussion about this legislation based on his award-winning Journal of Civil Litigation article, "Appeals of Right in Virginia: Preparing for The New Appellate Landscape."
This generational change in Virginia litigation has significant implications for all attorneys. This presentation will discuss the changes in the Court of Appeals’ composition and Virginia appellate jurisdiction. In addition, it will address the recently revised rules of appellate procedure implementing the appeal-of-right legislation that the defense bar will face when the new appellate regime takes effect on January 1, 2022. This strategic overview of Virginia’s new appellate landscape will help VADA members anticipate potential challenges and better prepare to serve their clients in a dramatically changed appellate environment.
