    Product Description

    Family Law is evolving and so is the evidence that is available for trial. What evidence is allowed in and how do you get it in? What is hearsay and what are the exceptions? What privileges have exceptions and when can they be waived?

    This seminar provides both experienced and new practitioners with real-life examples and suggestions to demystify the Probate and Family Court. With a panel of experienced practitioners, you learn how evidence can be used effectively at trial. In addition, hear what works and, perhaps most importantly, what doesn’t work. Stay on top of the latest issues in the introduction of real and demonstrative evidence, as well as the latest in electronic discovery. Get answers to questions on deposition transcripts at trial, what order to call your witnesses, what should you stipulate to in advance, and anything else you want to know!
