As 2018 continues to get smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror, I am pleased to usher in 2019 with the Winter Edition of Appellate Issues. Following tradition, this issue recaps the AJEI Summit, held in November 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. The issue features a boundless variety of articles written by an array of talented authors, capturing the essence of both the quality of AJEI programming and the talents of our Council of Appellate Lawyer members. Before turning to the articles, a word of thanks and congratulations to my former co-editor, Wendy McGuire Coats. Wendy was recently appointed to be a judge on the Contra Costa County, California Superior Court, but not before she worked tirelessly to help me recruit a fantastic and diverse group of authors who contributed thought-provoking and interesting articles for this robust issue.
As always, thank you for reading and please email me if you would like to write for Appellate Issues.
