Abstract

This article serves numerous purposes. The piece not only provides a solid analysis of Workers' Compensation appellate procedure, but also includes many tips on appeals, from brief writing to oral arguments. The piece can serve as both a "how to" manual for practitioners and a suggestion for change to the Illinois General Assembly. The author draws on his own extensive experience in appellate procedure, especially in the area of Workers' Compensation. The theme of the piece is that understanding the strict requirements of Workers' Compensation appeals will allow practitioners to successfully prosecute those appeals. The piece then concludes by suggesting areas in which Workers' Compensation laws could benefit from changes and improvements.
