Case work

Kudos to the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association for hosting an event about the legal review and appeal process on Jan. 22.

The legal eagles sponsored the event, “A Review of the Appellate Process,” as a way of giving up-and-coming lawyers a glimpse into the appellate process and their tips on presenting the best cases.

The event offered attendees a wealth of knowledge from a panel of established judges such as Justice Sylvia Hinds-Radix, Justice Doris Ling-Cohan, and Justice Michelle Weston, who all shed light on the appellate process in the courtroom.

The panel was moderated by the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association’s vice president Natoya McGhie, who led the discussion with the judges.

Moving forward, the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association plans on having more open discussions, such as its next big event on Feb. 27, called “Lunch with a Judge” at the Supreme Court Downtown.
