Connecticut Preargument Conference Statement
Preargument conference statements must be filed along with the appeal form in all non-criminal cases. See P.B. § 63-4(a)(5). The preargument statement must be accompanied by a copy of the trial court’s written memorandum of decision, if there was one, or a transcript of the trial court’s oral decision, if a transcript is available. In addition, the issues that the appellant plans to raise on appeal must be appended to the statement. After the filing of the preargument statement, the parties, in cases deemed appropriate by the Chief Justice, Chief Judge or designee, are informed by letter of the date and location of the conference

Connecticut Attendance at Oral Argument Form
In the Supreme Court, both the appellant and the appellee are allowed 30 minutes of argument time respectively. P.B. § 70-4. The practice of the Appellate Court is to allow both the appellant and the appellee 20 minutes of argument time respectively. The appellant may reserve rebuttal time out of the allotted time. The appellant opens and generally closes the argument. P.B. § 70-3. Only one person may argue for any one party unless special permission is obtained from the presiding jurist prior to the date of argument. P.B. § 70-4. Multiple counsel representing different parties on the same side of a case may apportion the argument time allotted to that side between themselves without special permission of the court. A party must have filed a brief or joined in the brief of another party in order to argue at all. A party that has been admitted as amicus curiae may not argue unless specifically granted permission to do so. P.B. § 67-7. Such permission is rarely granted. The Appellate Court sometimes determines that certain cases are appropriate for disposition without oral argument. P.B. § 70-1. If a case is chosen for such disposition, counsel and pro se parties are notified of this fact by letter. If either party has an objection to waiving oral argument, that party must respond to the letter within 7 days to request a hearing on whether the case is indeed appropriate for disposition without oral argument. Upon receipt of such request, the case will be placed on the court motion calendar where both sides may be heard briefly on the issue of whether oral argument should be allowed. Counsel may, at any time, request the court’s permission to submit a case for consideration on the record and the briefs only.
