My First Federal Trial: Proper Procedure and Successful Advocacy
Federal court practice varies greatly from state court practice. Attorneys learn quickly that there are significant substantive differences in practices and procedures when trying their first federal case. Federal court boasts its own rules of civil procedure, rules of evidence and discovery. Attorneys must also learn the role of magistrate judges in the process. This video-encore offers fundamental guidance to attorneys with little or no experience trying federal cases, and acts as a refresher course for attorneys looking to brush up on best practices for federal trials.
Experienced panelists will discuss:
• An Introduction to the Federal Court System and the Clerk's Office
• Importance of knowing your trial judge and their applicable courtroom procedures
• Pre-Trial Preparation
• Witness Preparation
• Opening Statements
• Direct & Cross Examination
• Introduction of Evidence
