Judges conclude by making a decision on a law involving the same element of a law in a court procedure. Both sides present their arguments of the disputed element in the law, based on the facts of the case, as they are submitted and approved the court.

The plaintiff and defendant supply the facts.

The jury finds the truth in the facts.

The lawyers argue elements of the law that apply to the facts.

The Judges determines a conclusion based on their view of the law. Or a jury will determine if the elements of the law are met in the augments based on jury instructions.

A Judge concludes a case by hearing both sides of the disagreement, involving the elements of a law based on facts in the record.

Conclusions are not for attorneys, Conclusions are reserved for Judges.

The conclusion of the Lower Court or trial court Judge can be appealed based on a procedural error or examining whether the lower court made the correct legal determinations, rather than hearing direct evidence and determining what the facts of the case were.

The result of an appeal can be:
Affirmed: Where the reviewing court basically agrees with the result of the lower court’s ruling(s).
Reversed: Where the reviewing court basically disagrees with the result of the lower court’s ruling(s), and overturns their decision.
Remanded: Where the reviewing court sends the case back to the lower court.

Appeals may be costly, and the appellate court must find an error on the part of the court below that justifies upsetting the verdict. Therefore, only a small proportion of trial court decisions result in appeals. Some appellate courts, particularly supreme courts, have the power of discretionary review, meaning that they can decide whether they will hear an appeal brought in a particular case. Court sends the case back to the lower court.
