Description

So you filed or were served with a lawsuit, now what? This course will focus on the journey from the initial complaint through to pre-trial and dispositive motion practice. It will require the practitioner to analyze the claims, facts, defenses and evidence needed to support or refute a particular case and to strategize how the litigation and discovery process can best be utilized to achieve those goals. Practitioners will be provided a mock fact pattern and complaint and will be asked to develop a case litigation plan in order to support or defend the case.

Goals include:

  • Case Visualization & Strategy: Cultivate the ability to envision your “best case” presentation before a judge or jury, and strategize backwards, aligning discovery and evidence collection to achieve that final vision.
  • Holistic Case Management: Gain insights into key stages such as initial evaluation, case selection criteria, dispositive motion practice, discovery processes, pre-trial motions, and expert retention to foster a comprehensive case approach.
  • Nevada Supreme Court Case Analysis: Dive into pivotal Nevada Supreme Court cases, understanding the essential elements to either support or refute legal actions and leverage this knowledge in case work-up.
  • Application of Case Law: Learn to adeptly utilize case law to shape and strengthen litigation strategies, ensuring a robust foundation for trial preparation.
