The Who, What, When and Where in Civil Litigation

Issues like standing, mootness, and venue are critically important for successful civil litigation. Nonetheless, these matters may be obscure and frustrate litigants because they are not easy to understand. Beginning with a discussion of what is a ‘case or controversy,’ the course will cover different types of jurisdiction, including subject matter, personal, and territorial, and address venue objections like forum non conveniens and forum shopping, and how to raise them.

The Why of Filing Suit; Ethics in Civil Litigation

When planning to sue, a lawyer needs to question whether he or she might be opening floodgates for other litigation, including involving herself or himself as a defendant. Abuse of process is a real cause of action and recovery of attorney fees is the hope of everyone who gets sued. This course will address dealing with bothersome lawyers, the importance of honesty with clients and candor to the courts and provide a checklist of ramifications that might be overlooked.

Recorded live in August 2018.
