New Research Guide Available Now: Pennsylvania Appellate Law & Practice

Those looking to appeal a case to the Pennsylvania Commonwealth, Superior, or Supreme Courts may find themselves asking the questions: Who has the right to appeal?; Where should I appeal to?; How long do I have to appeal?; What orders/decisions/opinions can be appealed?; and How do I appeal?

Our new research guide, Pennsylvania Appellate Law and Practice, aims to direct users to resources that can help them answer these questions. Key treatises and form sets highlighted in the guide include Dunlap-Hanna Pennsylvania Forms, Pennsylvania Appellate Practice (also referred to as Darlington), Pennsylvania Law Encyclopedia, Standard Pennsylvania Practice, and West's Pennsylvania Forms.

Appellate law practitioners may also be interested in these other research guides: Pennsylvania Statutes, Pennsylvania Court Rules - State, Pennsylvania Cases - Appellate Level. Find these and all our research guides at https://www.jenkinslaw.org/research/guides.
