Appellate Procedure Checklist–Guides to Help You Determine Your Service & Filing Deadlines in AD1 and AD2

When it comes to service & filing deadlines, the Appellate Division, First and Second Departments are quite different. In the First Department, Appellants are given nine months from the date on the Notice of Appeal to serve/file a Record on Appeal or Appendix. In the Second Department, Appellants are only given six months. Also, the First Department schedules oral arguments based on a Term calendar; the Second Department does not have such a calendar system.

Below, find the AD1 Term calendar and a graphic that helps take the guessing work out of AD2 service/filing deadlines.
