Description

This nationwide series, moderated by Hon. Jeremy Fogel, Director of the Federal Judicial Center and U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, will tackle the challenge of making motions better. National thought leaders will lead discussions with local judges and top plaintiffs’ and defense counsel, analyzing problems with current practice and offering new, better, and cutting edge approaches for resolving interlocutory disputes, including how to:

  • Employ novel informal processes to narrow disputes or obviate having to file a motion
  • Streamline motions to make them more efficient and powerful
  • Focus the judge’s attention on what really matters
  • Obtain faster decisions and better results

Judges and lawyers in attendance will leave with an array of new methods to upgrade motion practice, make motions and oppositions more effective, save time and reduce expense, enhance credibility, and lead to better outcomes for clients.
