Appellate practice means legal practice where advocates appear in appeals courts hearing appeals arising out of orders passed in original jurisdiction of courts. For example – an aggrieved party may file an appeal against final orders, judgments and decrees passed by courts having original jurisdiction before the court where appeal is provided by law. An appeal is a right provided by law to a party to a dispute. In the absence of specific provision of appeal, an aggrieved person is not able to file appeal.

Some examples of cases where are considered to be part of appellate practice are:-

  • Court cases in Higher Appellate Courts and Supreme Courts of different countries;
  • Appeals in cases of contractual remedies against individuals, institutions and also against government;
  • Complex court appeals relating to insurance, commercial, contract and torts.
