11th Annual Circuit Court Boot Camp: The Nuts and Bolts (FL) (Recorded Packages)
Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)
We have put on our premier Circuit Court Boot Camp for over a decade for a reason – it’s that good. This program delves into general litigation skills and strategies as well as providing an inside look at, and advice about, litigating in Florida Circuit Court.
Year after year attendees rave about the program.
And year after year we adjust the agenda based on input to make it even better.
We cover everything from complaint strategies to depos and discovery, to case management conferences, motion writing, trial prep, and trial techniques. Your faculty will also discuss how to preserve your trial record for an appeal, post trial motions and judgments.
And we make sure to teach you the mistakes to avoid as well.
If you are new, or somewhat new, to litigation – this seminar is for you.
Recently graduated law school? – can’t miss it. You don’t get these skills, this practical advice, and this insight from sitting judges in law school.
There is no better Circuit Court and litigation primer program in Florida. Our testimonials can speak to that claim.
This program was recorded live on June 7 & 9, 2022. The recorded package will be available in audio or video format approximately 2-3 weeks after the program and include seminar materials.*
