Description

This CLE program covers the first steps in successful litigation of a high-frequency police liability case, whether you are for the plaintiff or the defense. Programs to follow will cover discovery, evidence, and motions; and pre-trial, trial and post-trial from the plaintiff’s and defense perspective. In this practical program that is based on a hypothetical fact pattern, you will learn how to select a winning plaintiff’s case, identify the legal claims and defenses, draft representation agreements for the plaintiff and defense, avoid conflicts of interest on the defense side, preserve records and evidence, interview police officer clients, and prepare your complaint or answer.
