The Duty to Develop the Record

February 5, 2016,12 noon - 1 p.m.

This program offers 1 hour participatory MCLE credit and 1 hour legal specialization credit in Workers' Compensation Law. You must register in advance to participate.

All too often a litigator can find himself after trial or reconsideration facing three dreaded words: develop the record.  Developing the record can be a discovery issue where the evidence is insufficient.  In other cases it can be the failure to spot a necessary issue, for which no evidence is presented.  Either way, the litigator need not despair.  Two imminently experienced litigators will detail each party’s duty to properly develop the record before submitting the case to trial including tips and tricks using real life examples.

Speakers: Jack Goodchild and Ralph Malmquist.
