Many of you have received your judgments from the San Diego Superior Court since it reopened. Did you know that if you feel that the courts made a legal mistake during your trial that affected the outcome of your case, you can file an appeal to have your case heard before the appellate court? But….. how?

Well, this Tuesday, July 21st, the San Diego Law Library, the Legal Aid Society of San Diego, and the San Diego County Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section are hosting our monthly Civil Appellate Self-Help Workshop online. This workshop is designed for individuals with civil cases that want to appeal or have appealed their case to the 4th District Court of Appeal and who are not represented by an attorney. The Workshop will explain the appellate process and identify resources that can help handle an appeal.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 21st, at 4:00 pm. Attendees MUST register in advance by contacting the Legal Aid Society of San Diego at (619) 471-2781. Potential registrants will then be called for screening and receive a Zoom link to the virtual workshop. And, if you miss this month’s workshop, there is one held the 3rd Tuesday of each month!

The Civil Appellate Self-Help Workshop is also an opportunity to learn more about the Access to Appellate Justice Pro Bono Program, a program that pairs self-represented appellants with pro bono attorneys.
