Fast-Track Your Litigation Paralegal Career with our 2020 Litigation Paralegal Conference!

In this two-day educational event, you will learn to proactively manage your litigation cases instead of waiting to get piecemeal projects from your attorneys.

There is a BIG gap between what a paralegal learns in school and what the lawyers need from them as part of a litigation team.

This Litigation Paralegal Conference will show you everything you need to know to proactively manage the discovery phase of your litigation cases.

Attorneys don’t have the time to train new paralegals.

Other paralegals don’t have the time to train you either.

So you wait.

And you wait longer.

While costly mistakes are made.

Don’t put your paralegal career on hold while you’re waiting for someone to show you what to do!

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”June 1 @ 2:00 p.m. EDT: Proactive Case Management (60 min)”]Handling a case proactively involves taking charge and doing things that will move a case forward without having to be told what to do each step of the way.  It also involves an understanding that to be truly proactive, a paralegal should develop and refine key behaviors that are needed to be a successful litigation paralegal.  In this module, we use a sample complaint and walk paralegals through the things they can do the moment the complaint comes in.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”June 1 @ 3:30 EDT: Drafting Discovery (60 min)”]We make drafting discovery requests and responses easy with a technique that will work on all types of litigation cases.  We include group exercises using the sample complaint from Module 1 to show paralegals how to become the master of discovery drafting on their litigation team, even when they must draft discovery from scratch without a form or a template.

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”June 2 @ 9:00 a.m. EDT: E-discovery Basics (60 min)”]All litigation paralegals, regardless of the specific practice area, should have a general understanding of e-discovery and how it fits into the discovery phase of a litigation matter.  In this session, we introduce paralegals to the basics of e-discovery, the industry models, and the court rules affecting electronically stored information and more.  Note:  there is a more in-depth training on all phases e-discovery in the E-discovery Paralegal Boot Camp (the next course in this paralegal training package)[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”June 2 @ 10:15 a.m. EDT: Project Planning (60 min)”]E-discovery projects can be the most expensive part of litigation.  And if we’re not careful, they can also be where the biggest mistakes happen.  In this module, we give you a template to be able to plan for the project to reduce the likelihood of mistakes happening.
