You read The Rules of Civil Procedure in law school, and you've used them on an asneeded basis since being called to the bar—but do you really know the Rules? This On-Demand Webcast is an invaluable opportunity to step back and consider the Rules again, this time with the perspective of actual advocacy experience, and from a strategic perspective. Our panel of litigators and judges show you the best way to navigate these crucial pages. Whether you're drafting pleadings; applying for a time extension; or preparing for examination for discovery, summary judgment motions, or trials, a detailed knowledge of the lesser-known rules can make a marked difference in your efficacy and potentially in your client's result.
