President's Message

Eileen Fox, Clerk of Court, The Supreme Court of New Hampshire. Welcome to the website of the National Conference of Appellate Court Clerks (NCACC). The NCACC was formed in 1973 to improve the skills and knowledge of appellate court clerks and to promote the effective administration of appellate courts. It includes members from most U.S. states, many federal appellate courts, and several appellate clerks from other countries. On our website, you’ll find a great deal of information about issues facing appellate courts, video presentations from past conferences on topics such as the implementation and use of technology, and reports on caseload statistics and technology trends. Each year, the NCACC holds an annual meeting with presentations on topics such as technology, leadership and management skills, and ethics. We also reserve time for members to discuss developing issues and simply to get to know one another. In 2018, the NCACC annual meeting will be held in San Diego from July 29 to August 3, 2018. If you have attended one of our conferences, I hope that you found the experience to be both educational and enjoyable and that you will be able to join us in San Diego. If you are new to the world of appellate courts, I hope that you will consider joining us by becoming a member.

State Court Guide to Statistical Reporting

Members of the NCACC are working with The Court Statistics Project to review and update appellate caseload reporting guidelines. The Court Statistics Project (CSP), after having analyzed several years of appellate court caseload data using the data collection model recommended in the State Court Guide to Statistical Reporting, has become aware of various court processes that differ from the assumptions made by the CSP staff and that may affect the manner in which appellate cases are being counted and compared across courts. In an effort to determine the extent of these variations in process, CSP staff requests that you review the appellate process flowchart and recommended counting rules provided here.
