Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 04, 2018
The NEWBIE LITIGATOR SCHOOL PART 1 series is one of several series (together with the “Newbie Litigator School” Parts 2 and 3) that Financial Poise designed specifically for attorneys who are just starting to get involved in civil litigation or who could use a refresher on litigation fundamentals. The purpose is to introduce different components and phases of litigation, from the basic rules of civil procedure and evidence, to dispositive motions, through trial, and on to appeal and post-judgment collection work.
The second episode of the series, Discovery Practice, airs on April 12th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Adam Hirsch of Roetzel & Andress. He is joined by Damian Capozzola of The Law Offices of Damian D. Capozzola, Michael Joyce of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, and Max Stein of Boodell & Domanskis, LLC.
If you say the word “discovery” to a litigator, the reaction may not be kind. Discovery—the exchange of relevant information, usually in the form of documents or oral depositions, takes up the majority of a litigator’s time and costs clients the most money. This episode begins with a summary of the rules governing discovery. In particular, we discuss the new federal rules governing the preservation and discovery of electronic data and information, and the new concept of “proportionality” in discovery. We also discuss the practicalities of discovery: budgeting, tactics, and common opportunities and pitfalls. This hour demystifies a mystifying process, and to provide listeners with what they need to know to not get tripped up in litigation. At the very least, you will understand why the acronym “ESI” causes our panel to wince.
