Benefits:

You can save tens of thousands of dollars in fees for clients by prevailing in pre-trial motions. Over 99% of cases today resolve before ever reaching a jury, which makes motion practice more important than ever. Successful counsel must carefully consider strategies to draft and oppose motions to ensure compliance with the latest state and federal rules, while determining how to highlight key pieces of evidence. We'll cover effectively utilizing preliminary & discovery motions, motions in limine, writing and responding to powerful dispositive motions, as well as post-trial motions. Specific emphasis will be placed on the changing shape of the motion to dismiss, the overlooked elements of summary judgment, tactics to advantage the client with regard to discovery motions, effectively preserving issues for appeal, as well as cutting edge insight on amendments. Registration includes access to complete course and reference materials to outline and diagram the discussed best arguments, practices, and techniques. Register today to learn the most effective plans on drafting and opposing powerful motions.
