FAQ - Appealing to an Appellate Court

Where can I find information about briefs, and what should my brief look like?

The rules governing each type of appeal include specific requirements for briefs. The rules are available online at: Arizona Court Rules. You may also visit a local law library or stop by the Clerk's Office for copies of the rules. A brief that does not comply with the rules can be rejected by the judges.

For members of the bar, hyperlinking to the electronic record is required. An online guide to hyperlinking to the electronic record from within documents is available at: Inserting Hyperlinks to the Electronic Record.
