Today cases are won or lost in the pretrial process. In their book, Pretrial Advocacy (National Institute of Trial Advocacy/Wolters Kluwer 2021), Authors Reuben Guttman and JC Lore refer to the pretrial process as “front loaded.” Guttman and Lore explain that changes to the standards governing pleading, class certification, discovery, summary judgement, and experts -- along with the advent of electronic information including social media – have changed the face of litigation. 

In this 60-minute CLE, Guttman and Lore will highlight:

The key evidentiary and procedural rules for the pretrial process

How to think about the early stages of your case to be better prepared for long-term success Information collection and complaint preparation/investigation in the age of the internet

Practical approaches for motions and arguments
