Using and Challenging Statistical Evidence


Learn when the opportunity for statistical evidence arises, and how to best communicate such evidence at trial.

The use of statistics frequently plays a critical role in the litigation arena, from evaluating cases for your clients to resolving disputes and possibly taking a matter to trial. Lawyers often shy away from using statisticians, quite frankly because understanding this world can seem overwhelming and confusing. Real vignettes will be presented from actual case experience to better understand how statistical evidence is used in a variety of cases: business litigation, class actions, personal injury, product liability, construction law, and discrimination in employment and housing. This topic will assist in determining whether you need a statistician and how best to present the statistical evidence to help you present your case in the light most favorable for your client.
