Director John O’Herron will be presenting at this year’s Virginia Bar Association Appellate Summit on the Amended Virginia Rule 1:1.

About the session: What is and is not an appealable or “final” order often vexes attorneys and litigants. And because the question impacts appellate jurisdiction, getting the answer right can mean the life or death of an appeal. In 2018, the Supreme Court of Virginia amended Rule 1:1 to clarify what is and is not a final order. While the new rule certainly helps, there are always challenges in applying to individual cases and claims. This presentation will focus on the recent amendments, Supreme Court and Court of Appeals case law, practical applications, and tips for ensuring your appeal is proper.
