Why You Should Attend
Well-planned and executed discovery is critical to the success of any litigation. Although overall strategy might be determined by partners or other senior attorneys, the day-to-day management of document exchange is often the responsibility of junior attorneys and paralegals. Having access to numerous sample disclosure forms—as is common for litigation groups—can be beneficial but failing to properly tailor those forms to the particulars and strategy of the case can be disastrous.
This course was designed to move your drafting skills beyond the cut-and-paste basics of discovery forms. We will provide valuable practice tips on optimizing the disclosure process while avoiding costly discovery mistakes.
