Arguing the law
Appeals are where the law itself is argued. It is in the appeallate process that the meaning of the statutes written by the legislature is determined. This is the process by which past decisions guide current decisions, and current decisions bear great weight on the choices future litigators are able to make.
Not a retrial
Unfortunately, an appeal is not a second chance to argue your case. An appeal to the courts of appeals argues that there was an error in the procedure, an overreach in authority, or an error in the application of the law. There are many appeals that are won or lost where the specific facts of the case were practically irrelevant.
