Moving exhibits into evidence through objections and roadblocks is an art that is learned through practice. Weaving through evidentiary minefields and strategizing in real time to preserve the record and uphold your case can be a fraught feat. Building a working understanding of the process is vital to be able to plan ahead and confidently respond to hurdles both expected and unexpected.
Learn how to enter evidence at trial and navigate potential objections you might get or want to make with Litigation Skills Series: Exhibits & Evidentiary Foundations. Through lecture and demonstration, litigation experts will teach the basics of admitting evidence—including business records, charts, photos, ledgers, drawings, letters, emails, social media posts, and other documents. The course will be a hands-on presentation where we will learn and practice the most common evidentiary issues through demonstration and audience participation. This training is appropriate for public-interest, law firm, in-house, and government lawyers, as well as law students who have taken evidence and have trial-practice or mock-trial experience.
The Exhibits & Evidentiary Foundations faculty include:
- Kate Oler, Special Master on the United States Court of Federal Claims
- Greg Lipper, LeGrand Law PLLC
CLE credit for this training is: 2.0 CA general, 2.1 NJ general, and 2.0 NY general. There may be reciprocal in other jurisdictions.
