dc.description.abstract "Intramural reforms" are measures used by the U.S. Courts of Appeals to change the traditional appellate procedures by which they historically have performed their appellate role and function. These reforms amount to procedural shortcuts, resulting in an abbreviated appellate process, which have been justified for the most part by the threat of docket growth that has gripped the courts of appeals since the 1960s. This Article focuses on proposed intramural reforms, on reforms presently under limited experimentation for possible wider implementation, and on others still on the drawing board. The proposals examined in this Article are grouped under eight broad headings: Technology; Administrative Units and the En Banc Court; Differentiated Case Management; Greater Orality; Maintaining and Improving Judicial Productivity; Two-Judge Panels; Advisory Staff; and Dealing with Frivolous Appeals. en_US
