Winning at Trial: Essential Trial Preparation Techniques

Learn the essential's necessary to prepare a case to go to trial.

Many legal professionals litigate cases, but very few do so with an eye toward trial. A lot of time is spent burning energy on issues that really make no difference at the end of the day. This course will bring to light some of the general issues that come up while preparing your matter for trial, no matter the type of case. Knowing the issues for trial preparation will focus a legal professional on the things that matter during litigation and avoid chasing issues down rabbit holes. Understanding the issues ahead of time will impact the pleadings, the discovery, the preparation of witnesses, and the approach you take in mediation.
