Learning level: Fundamental/Intermediate
Affidavits are the most important and most common form of evidence that a litigator will ever encounter or use. In this intensive half-day program, expert litigators will take registrants through how not to draft an affidavit; how to dissect an affidavit from the other side; how to tell one's client's story as governed by law, practice, ethics and the rules of evidence; and how to avoid common mistakes. While one often learns best by making mistakes, here you can avoid embarrassment and potentially an award of costs, letting experienced counsel and an experienced Justice of the Supreme Court of BC take you through prime examples of improper affidavits, teaching you, in the process, exactly what not to do. Do not miss this unique opportunity to learn how to master this essential skill set under the guidance of experienced counsel and Members of the Supreme Court of BC.
