We consider discontinuous as well as continuous Galerkin methods for the time discretization of a class of nonlinear parabolic equations. We show existence and local uniqueness and derive optimal order optimal regularity a priori error estimates. We establish the results in an abstract Hilbert space setting and apply them to a quasilinear parabolic equation.
