Countless cases are won or lost without ever empaneling a jury—often because they are settled out of court or resolved on summary judgment. A litigator’s proficiency in planning a case is as important as his or her understanding of the law or ability to present effectively before a jury. Gain your indispensable guide to pretrial planning for the “well-tried” case.  Walk through the process, exploring concepts and strategies that will teach you how to think and act as a successful advocate in the practice of pretrial litigation.
