Superior Court Boot Camp (15th Annual): The Nuts and Bolts (CA)

Important note:  We at Pincus are keeping a close eye on the Covid-19 virus crisis.

Due to the ongoing mandates regulating group gatherings, social distancing and “stay at home” government orders in various states, we have switched all of our upcoming CLE programs to the same online distance learning format as universities and law schools across the country.

We will be providing the new online distance learning platform information to everyone who has or will register shortly.

The programs will remain the same – they will be held at the same times and days and with the same faculty. You’ll all just be logging in from the safety of your home (or office if you haven’t been ordered to stay home yet). If for some reason you can no longer attend, we will automatically convert your registration to a recording of the program.

As of right now, our online distance learning format will go through our May live programs. We will evaluate by Mid-May whether that will continue for our June programs as well or if we can safely gather in person to learn together at that time.

We very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this very difficult time.

 

Pincus Professional Education has been putting on its annual California Superior Court Boot Camps for fifteen years for a reason – they are just that good. In fact, they are just that great.

Year after year attendees rave about the program.

Year after year we tweak the agenda based on input to make it even better.

Year after year we invite some of the same speakers back because their ratings are so good and attendees learn so much from them.

This dynamic and information-packed seminar will teach you all about litigating in California State Court. It will also teach you what need to know to be a successful litigator in any court.

Be sure to read the past attendee testimonials so you can really see what people think about the program (see the testimonials tab above).

Your faculty includes sitting judges — hearing from judges, and being able to ask them questions directly in a non-court, non-threatening environment, is invaluable. You just can’t get that type of instruction anywhere else.

In fact, many large and medium sized firms send multiple associates each year to this program (and to our Federal Court Boot Camp), because they value the instruction and insight provided so much. (If you are from a firm that wants to send four or more attorneys, give us a call for an extra special discount).

We also have plaintiff and defense attorneys from large and small firms and solos, to make sure you get a variety of perspectives on each topic.

This really is a course you cannot miss if you are new to litigation or want a refresher.

In the morning, your faculty will provide advice and tips regarding your complaints and answers, suggest strategies to create your case themes, and will walk you through the timelines, rules and suggestions related to discovery and e-discovery. They will then move on to deposition techniques – rules, timelines and advice. Who should you depose? How do you prepare? What does the state require in terms of notice and deadlines?

The morning is capped off with a discussion about motions – to dismiss, for summary judgment, ex parte applications, continuances, reconsideration and others. You’ll learn about when to do them, how to do them and when not to do them. You’ll also get tips on how to write them, and tips from judges regarding what they find persuasive in briefs and what just doesn’t cut it.

In the afternoon, you’ll hear a few tips about how to give a great oral argument, then you’ll learn about all of the components of your trial, from the Final Status Conference, to your trial outline and Motions in Limine. Your faculty will provide you with advice and insight to help you deal with your juries: voir dire, jury selection, instructions and verdict form pitfalls. And then you’ll hear about your trial – getting evidence admitted, the direct and cross examinations and objections.

The day will end, of course, with a brief discussion about Preserving your Record for Appeal, and Post-Trial Motions and Judgments.

This seminar is a great program for newer attorneys or attorneys wanting to get the court’s perspective on effective litigation techniques.  If you are looking for a more advanced or in-depth course on specific topics, like depositions or jury selection, do a quick search in the right bar for those courses.

The entire seminar is designed to teach you not only what you must do, but also how to do it. The faculty also helps you understand common or easily made mistakes and how to avoid them.

This program covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time, so come prepared to learn and to take a lot of notes!

And the seminar handbook is usually 150 – 200+ pages, chock full of outlines and samples for your reference. You also receive a downloadable link with outlines and samples provided during past Superior Court Boot Camps for the past few years.

This program is an invaluable resource that will help guide you through your cases and ensure your success.

Who should attend?

Newer attorneys and those new to litigation. Just graduated law school? – can’t miss it. You don’t get these skills and this practical advice in law school.

Has it been a long time since you’ve been in the courtroom or written a motion? This one’s for you as well.  And if you’re with a law firm – join many other large law firms such as Manatt and send your new associates each year.  Contact us for a multi-attorney discount for four or more attorneys.

On our testimonials page (see the link above) you will see a ton of comments about how great this program is. But if you don’t have the time, here’s what just a few attendees have said in the past:

 

“Excellent overview of civil litigation from filing of complaint through post-judgment appeal. The speakers were engaging, informative, and even entertaining!” – Brendan Malone, Esq.

“Very helpful to see the forest from the trees. As a new litigator, it’s easy to get lost in and lose sight of the big picture. Subject matter seemed right on point for helping me in day-to-day practice…Speakers gave lots of practical examples, thorough explanations, and tips.” – Lauren Cox

“This program gave a great overview of the different stages of litigation in a short amount of time.” – Heidi Kim, Esq.

”Very validating and also good food for thought. This was very thorough training.” – Heidi Lehrman, Senior Counsel, CA Department of Managed Health Care

 

 

Can’t attend? This program will be recorded live in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The audio packages, including seminar materials, will be available within two-three weeks after each live program date.
