Description

Attendees will hear from experienced trucking lawyers on how to effectively prepare your trucking case for trial. First, attendees will learn about a number of important steps to be taken during the discovery period to prepare your case for trial, including the importance of the initial investigation, the preservation of relevant evidence, and the use of motions to dismiss, motions for judgment on the pleadings, and motions for summary judgment to dispose of potentially harmful issues prior to trial. Second, the speakers will discuss pre-trial pleadings to be filed prior to trial, including how to prepare an effective pre-trial order that addresses relevant and potentially harmful issues; what specific motions in limine you should consider filing prior to trial; and when to file a motion to exclude expert testimony. Lastly, the speakers will go in-depth into all aspects of the jury trial, including jury selection, opening statements, cross examination of Plaintiff’s witnesses, admitting evidence, motions to be made at the conclusion of the plaintiff’s case in chief, direct examination of the defendant’s witnesses, closing arguments, motions to be made at the conclusion of all evidence, and the jury charge conference.
