Description:
 
Lawyers often tell their clients that while they must prepare as if every case will go to trial, more
than 90% of cases are resolved before trial. If a settlement  is not reached, the resolution
typically comes through the court ruling on a dispositive motion. This episode begins with a look
at motions to dismiss, with focus on the still-developing Twombly-Iqbal standard, and how that
standard is put into practice. We then discuss summary judgment motions. That discussion
includes everything from making a summary judgment record to brief writing, to making a
cross-motion for summary judgment.  This webinar shines a light on what happens to the great
percentage of cases that don’t make it to trial.
 
This webinar is delivered in Plain English, understandable to you even if you do not have a background in the subject. It brings you into an engaging, even sometimes humorous, conversation designed to entertain as it teaches. And, it is specifically designed to be viewed as a stand-alone webinar, meaning that you do not have to view the other webinars in the series to get a lot out of it.
