Preparing for Trial: 60 Days and Counting
Select a format
Whether one is counsel for plaintiff or the defense, in a larger case or a smaller one, the essential process of preparation in the final months before trial is the same -- notwithstanding the fact that every case is unique, every court has different rules, and every judge has personal preferences. In recent years, detailed trial rules have proliferated in our jurisdictions, just as the tolerance of courts and judges of ignorance (or knowing non-compliance) with those rules has lessened. When these facts are coupled with client expectations, there is precious little room for "learning by doing" in preparing a case for trial.
Preparing for Trial demonstrates how to systematize your approach to the final weeks before trial, to assure there are no loose ends in your case, and to limit the stress of a very demanding time.
