Are you admitted in New Jersey but don’t have the opportunity to practice there very often? Do you shy away from cases because of a lack of familiarity with the practice and procedure? Are you just getting started in your law practice and want to be able to serve clients on both sides of the Delaware?
This program is designed for the Pennsylvania practitioner who wants to acquire or update their knowledge and comfort level practicing in the New Jersey Superior Court setting. Attorneys who regularly practice in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey address the differences in procedure, filing, motions practice, discovery, and rules of evidence between the states and then delve into some specific types of cases to illustrate how these differences play out. Among the types of cases to be addressed are auto law, medical malpractice, and premises liability matters.
