Second District Court of Appeal

California Appellate Project

Los Angeles


Welcome to our new website.

We are the Los Angeles office of the California Appellate Project ("CAP/LA").  We are a non-profit law firm. Under a contract with the State of California, CAP/LA manages the court-appointed counsel program for the Second Appellate District Court of Appeal, which has jurisdiction over Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties.  We also directly represent some clients under court-appointment.

As of September 1, 2017, TrueFiling is mandatory for filing documents in the California Supreme Court.  We plan to hold in-person training sessions to assist attorneys with TrueFiling and PDF bookmarking in the coming weeks, once the rules are established in the Second District. In the meantime, please review the Step-By-Step guide prepared by CCAP for assistance:

 TrueFiling Guide

When using CCAP's document, remember to change the Attorney General's email service to for our cases and remember that until the Second District has TrueFiling, you still have to electronically serve the Court of Appeal via its current e-filing web portal. 

For more details about TrueFiling and bookmarking requirements, view the TRUEFILING tab in our website menu.
