Federal Court Boot Camp (16th Annual): The Nuts and Bolts (CA)

Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)

Pincus Professional Education has put on its annual Federal Court Boot Camp for fifteen years for a reason – it’s that good.

Large law firms like Manatt send multiple associates to the program year after year why? Because it’s that good.

Small and mid-sized firms send their new associates each year as well. Why? Because it’s that good.

Solo attorneys who have heard from others about the program come why? Because it’s that good.

Our Federal Court Boot Camp has taught thousands of attorneys about the ins-and-outs of Federal Court, as well as general litigation strategies and skills. This seminar is both a litigation primer and a primer for litigating in Federal Court.

It is taught by Federal Court Magistrate and Federal District Court judges, very experienced litigators, and 25+ year career federal law clerks. You’ll get a unique perspective and an inside look at what the court wants and does not want from attorneys practicing in Federal Court.

Attendees have rated our faculty so highly that most of the faculty return to teach year after year (and some have taught every single year).

This litigation course will walk you through the essential components and tasks involved in your case, from start to finish. You’ll learn the rules and tasks, strategies and tactics, and the skills and techniques you must have to become a more effective and successful litigator in Federal Court and to be a more effective and successful litigator in general.

Take a look at our “testimonials” tab for how valuable attendees feel it is to hear from judges, career District Court law clerks and experienced litigators.

And take a look at our detailed agenda to see why our Federal Court Boot Camp program is the best in the state.

This is a newer attorney level program and is great for all types of attorney: Large firm, small firm, solo, government and legal aid.
