The MSBA's Civil Litigation and Solo & Small Firm Sections Present
"How to Get Your Evidence In: What's Admissible and What Isn't, and What to Do About It | Part 2: Litigation Series"
Evidence is the foundation for winning at trial. Even a good case can be undone if the evidence that proves your case doesn't make it into the record. Lawyers and clients can't afford to head into trial only to find out that the evidence they were relying on is not admissible - or to find out that they aren't prepared with the knowledge of how to admit it. This program will feature a pair of outstanding trial attorneys demonstrating the best practices for admitting evidence at trial, as well as the traps a lawyer can run into with some common misconceptions about what is admissible. Our veteran panel of judges will provide feedback and critique on common evidence issues that are likely to come up and how to deal with them. Don't jump in to a client's case without knowing whether the evidence in front of you can really be used at trial! Come and learn from the experts and see the best practices in action.
