Product Description

Rescheduled from 01/08/2018 to 02/12/2018

Money—most civil litigation and many trials turn on this issue. Damages the plaintiff may recover and the theories that support the award are crucial for an attorney to analyze when preparing a case. Many times, however, lawyers do not give enough attention to the amount of money the plaintiff may recover. More detrimental to their case, lawyers frequently become so focused on issues of liability that they ignore damages almost entirely. Regardless of whether you represent the plaintiff or defendant, this inadvertence can be a costly mistake.

This program addresses critical theories of damages and provides practical insight on how to approach damage issues at each stage of the case—pleading, discovery, summary judgment, trial, and settlement. You receive a complete tutorial informed by the collective expertise of all panelists to master your next case.
