What goes into an appellate brief

After a Nevada judge’s ruling, a person who is not satisfied with the decision may be able to make an appeal. According to the United States Courts, the issues usually stem from the belief that the court did not apply the law correctly, made the ruling based on the wrong law or conducted the trial in an unfair way. The petitioner who is filing for an appeal must provide the appellate court with a brief that outlines what his or her case is. In spite of the name, a brief is often a long and complex legal document.
