Courts of Appellate Jurisdiction
courts that are limited in their jurisdiction to matters of appeal and review from lower courts and trial courts; also known as appeals courts
This class was tough.
Dr. Pikus did an excellent job of stepping in for Dr. Kelly who originally taught the course. I would personally prefer her teaching style to Dr. Kelly's as it brings in a secondary perspective to Dr. Kelly's which is still present as we utilized his academic content.
This course featured two guest speakers. One sheriff also a J.D. from Harris County and a US district court judge. You see applied jurisprudence in relation to the course objectives.

Advice for students:
If you do ALL of the reading, you should get As and Bs on the tests. Do the readings before class and relate your lecture notes to recall reading info.
