The tools and techniques for litigation success!
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 which 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. You 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. The program will assist a broad spectrum of litigators to raise their level of practice.

- high level litigation best practices from the bench
- high level litigation skills: professionalism and file and client management
