McGeorge Law Review


As the number of cases appealed to our reviewing courts continues-to multiply annually, the judicial process has become increasingly overburdened and the necessity for appellate court reform has become more apparent. Responding to that need, the State Bar of California appointed a special committee to study the problem and make recommendations for reform of the appellate court system. In this article, Mr. Leavitt analyzes the problems facing the appellate courts and some of the solutions proposed by the State Bar Committee. The author also presents and discusses his own recommendations for change, which emphasize streamlining appellate court procedures rather than increasing the number of judges or proliferating the present judicial hierarchies
