Benefits:

You can save tens of thousands of dollars in fees for clients by prevailing in discovery. Over 99% of cases today resolve before ever reaching a jury, which makes discovery more important than ever. Successful counsel must carefully consider discovery strategies and techniques to ensure compliance with the latest state and federal rules, while determining how to locate key pieces of evidence. We'll cover specific strategies and solutions, including formulating discovery plans, successful arguments relating to motions to compel and motions for protective orders. The speakers for this program include two leading trial attorneys and one of the country's most distinguished professors of advocacy and skills training. Our distinguished seminar faculty will also cover how to find critical pieces of evidence against exclusion. Registration includes access to complete course and reference materials to outline and diagram the discussed best arguments, practices, and techniques.
