Who should attend: Civil litigators at the intermediate level who wish to move beyond the basics and master the finer points of working with the Supreme Court Rules. Experienced lawyers who seek a refresher on the elements of litigation practice will also find this program valuable.

Learning level: Intermediate

Knowledge of the Supreme Court Rules is a necessary but not sufficient condition to being a great civil litigator. To be an effective counsel requires an in-depth knowledge of the rules in practice and how to best utilize them in any given context. There are many nuances in Supreme Court Civil Practice that depend on a critical understanding of how a file can be expeditiously moved towards a satisfactory resolution.

This core practice course focuses on what counsel need to know to maximize their effectiveness in the increasingly challenging arena of civil litigation.

In this course, registrants will learn an arsenal of practice “secrets” that experienced counsel apply time and time again. This “beyond the basics” level course will blend black letter law, practice tips, best practices, and words of wisdom from seasoned practitioners. This is a program that will assist a broad spectrum of litigators to raise their level of practice.

At this course you will learn:

  • high level litigation best practices and pointers from members of the bench and senior members of the bar
  • high level litigation skills: use of preliminary objections, supercharging your written advocacy, dealing with opposing experts, managing large scale document production, managing multi-party and multi-action litigation
  • substantive law in important and sometimes overlooked facets of litigation practice: litigation without trial, the use of pre-trial injunctions, SLAPP suits. and their scope
  • high level advocacy skills: litigation know how that you can put to use immediately!

Expand your litigation arsenal with this information packed day!
