Federal Cases From Pleading to Judgment for Paralegals

Gain a refresher on important strategies and preparation techniques when practicing in federal court.

A thorough understanding of the federal trial process equips the paralegal to make valuable contributions to the trial team. Failure to understand how the litigation process works can lead to a waste of both the clientís and the trial teamís time, potentially hindering a successful outcome. The information is presented by a 20-year veteran of the federal court, and he will guide you through federal court deadlines, strategies for motion practice, and case preparation tactics. You will learn how to deal with missed deadlines, evidence problems, and effective use of magistrates. This topic is designed for anyone practicing in federal court.
