From Published to Precedential

Event Description

Online registration is now closed.
If you would still like to join, email by 9:00 am on June 1.

The Minnesota Court of Appeals previously designated its opinions as published or unpublished. In 2020, statutory and rule changes eliminated these designations and replaced them with "precedential" and "nonprecedential" opinions. Notably, the appellate rules now allow attorneys to argue for opinion publication. Join us to hear judicial and practitioner perspectives on the new system and learn strategies for persuading the Court to publish your next opinion.
