An appellant may elect to perfect his or her appeal by providing the appellate court with a full record on appeal, the contents of which are prescribed in CPLR 5526, or by using the "appendix method," pursuant to CPLR 5528(a)(5) and the Rules of the Court of Appeals and the Appellate Division.1 The "appendix system was adopted in New York after extensive study indicated the need to reduce the cost of printing records on appeal."2 It can result in considerable savings in printing costs.
