Summary judgment motions are a critical tool for litigators. They can help you resolve contentious issues, shorten civil actions, and even end litigation altogether. But this is only possible if you know when and how to effectively deploy them.
The plenary program will be held on September 26 and the learning-by-doing skills workshop
will be held on September 27. There are three registration options: (1) Zoom plenary + Zoom workshop, (2) Zoom plenary + in-person workshop (Toronto); or (3) Zoom plenary only (see below for more information).
Plenary Details | Tuesday, September 26, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (ET) (Via Zoom)
Attend this strategy-focused program and gain practical tips on how to prepare for, argue, and oppose a summary judgment motion. Judges and leading practitioners will take you through the most effective practices in summary judgment motions advocacy in engaging panel discussions, presentations, and live demonstrations.
Workshop Details | Wednesday, September 27, 2023, 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm (ET) (Via Zoom or In Person - Toronto)
Gain hands-on experience arguing a mock summary judgment motion in a supportive learning environment.
