- A short paper (no more than three (3) pages) describing the underlying position of the litigants,
- Copies of relevant pleadings, motions, decisions, or other papers to reflect the nature of the controversy,
- The name and email addresses of lead counsel of all parties involved in the litigation, and

THE PARTY REQUESTING AMICUS SUPPORT SHALL SEND A COPY OF THE REQUEST TO LEAD COUNSEL OF ALL OTHER PARTIES INVOLVED IN THE LITIGATION AND INFORM THEM THAT THEY ARE FREE TO MAKE SUBMISSIONS TO PAAi COMMITTEE WITHIN THREE (3) BUSINESS DAYS OF THE ORIGINAL REQUEST.
Please note that the committee needs at least 30 days to review the request and draft and print a brief. Requests submitted within that 30-day period will have a significantly decreased chance of being fulfilled.
Requests are to be submitted via email to the Chair of the Amicus Brief Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org For more information on procedures, contact Mr Kamal Rabha at 9899303086.
