Writing the Order/Decision/ Opinion to Avoid Remand

Tuesday
11:00 – 11:50 am

Grand Ballrooms 4 – 6
Convention Level


Hearing all of the testimony and considering all of the exhibits is just the start. You then have to write a decision that reflects your consideration of the evidence. You want your decision to be well-founded and authoritative. You surely don’t want to have that decision remanded to you to cure some gap or oversight. Remember the adage, “There’s never time to do it right, but there’s always time to do it over.” The panel’s presentation will help you craft your decisions and orders to appropriately frame the issues, describe the evidence you relied upon, and support your legal analysis.
