Conference Materials

Appellate Court Innovations

NCSC, in conjunction with the Conference of Chief Justices (CCJ), the Council of Chief Judges of the State Courts of Appeal (CCJSCA), the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA) and the National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks (NCACC), has developed an e-catalog of innovative practices, technological applications and good ideas to help appellate courts operate more efficiently and reduce the time to disposition. Much of the information presented was provided by CCJSCA members through a survey of appellate courts in late 2015. This e-catalog is an easily accessible and valuable resource to appellate courts as they seek to improve timeliness and learn from the experiences of their colleagues across the country.

The e-catalog is divided into sections pertaining to:

  • Summary of Survey Results
  • Widespread Technology Innovations
  • Technology Innovations on the Horizon
  • Preparing the Record
  • Briefing Stage • Case Assignment/Scheduling
  • Preparing the Opinion/Decision
  • Other Innovations
