Appeals and Policy

The Appellate Unit oversees written and oral advocacy for appeals in the New Jersey Courts. The caseload includes municipal court appeals and petitions for post-conviction relief filed in the Superior Court, direct and interlocutory appeals to the Appellate Division, and petitions for certification and other matters before the Supreme Court and Federal Courts. The Appellate Unit also acts as liaison to municipal prosecutors and police, reviews and drafts policy, reviews trial briefs, and assists in keeping the office apprised of developments in the law.
