The Appellate / Post Conviction Relief Section handles appeals which fall into four broad categories: appeals from indictable convictions, which we receive from the Attorney General as part of a referral program; appeals from non-indictable convictions; appeals from adjudications of delinquency; and interlocutory appeals, including emergency applications.
In addition, the Appellate/ Post Conviction Relief Section answers applications for post-conviction relief in State courts, for writs of habeas corpus in Federal court and answers motions on request. The section also monitors appeals to the Superior Court from the various municipal courts.
The Appellate Section is available to conduct research projects for other members of the staff and frequently provides pre- or mid- or post-trial legal advice for members of the trial teams. Finally, the Section administers the summer legal intern program.
