That key document furthers your case only if you can get it into evidence. We’ll show you how to do so at Litigation Skills Series: Exhibits & Evidentiary Foundations. Litigation experts Greg Lipper and Kate Oler will teach the basics of admitting evidence—including business records, charts, photos, ledgers, drawings, letters, emails, social media posts, and other documents.

Then, you’ll get on your feet and practice in small-group sessions, with feedback from experienced trial lawyers.

Greg Lipper is a partner at Clinton and Peed. He has extensive experience in criminal defense, business litigation, and First Amendment and media law, among many other areas of practice. He has represented parties or amici in over two-dozen cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Katherine Oler works at the United States Court of Federal Claims. Prior to her appointment to the Court, she served as an Air Force Judge Advocate where she primarily worked in the criminal litigation area. She has held positions as first-chair felon prosecutor, a defense attorney, and a trial judge. She also brings many years of trial advocacy teaching experience.

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.

This course has been approved for 1.75 general CLE credits in CA and 2.0 skills CLE credits in NY. CLE credit is pending but not guaranteed VA. Reciprocal credit in other jurisdictions may be available.
