Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the May 10th premiere of a new webinar “NEWBIE LITIGATOR SCHOOL PART 1 2018: Dispositive Motions" which looks at how some cases that couldn't be settled before trial can be resolved by a court ruling on a dispositive motion.

This panel of experts explains what happens to the great percentage of cases that don't make it to trial.

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 third episode of the series, Dispositive Motions, airs on May 10th 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, Robert Shore of Raines Feldman LLP, and Howard Kline of The Law Offices of Howard F. Kline.

Lawyers often tell their clients that while they must prepare as if every case will go to trial, more than 90% of cases are resolved before trial. If a settlement is not reached, the resolution typically comes through the court ruling on a dispositive motion. This episode begins with a look at motions to dismiss, with focus on the still-developing Twombly-Iqbal standard, and how that standard is put into practice. We then discuss summary judgment motions. That discussion includes everything from making a summary judgment record to brief writing, to making a cross-motion for summary judgment. This webinar shines a light on what happens to the great percentage of cases that don’t make it to trial.

The NEWBIE LITIGATOR SCHOOL 1 2018 Series is produced by Financial Poise™. The final episode in the series is “Working With Experts” airing on June 7th at 2:00 PM CST. All episodes will be available live through West LegalEdCenter and then on-demand following the live premiere.

As with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
