Effective responses to misconduct during civil litigation: Don't get mad, get an order!
Jump Start on CPD 2018
Friday, March 9, 2018
9:00 am – 4:00 pm via Webinar
(Original date: November 17, 2017)
Who should attend: Civil and commercial litigators.
Learning level: All levels
This is CLEBC's first course focused exclusively on addressing misconduct during litigation. Good counsel focus on the issues that matter, make concessions, reach agreements where appropriate, and conduct themselves as officers of the court. Although good counsel approach litigation in this manner, this is not always the case. Misconduct by litigants, their counsel, or in rare cases, by the court, tax our justice system and add frustration, cost, and delay. In this full-day course, senior counsel and judges provide guidance and procedural strategies to effectively respond to and sanction misconduct.
At this course you will learn:
- the types of difficult issues that you can face as counsel — don't be taken by surprise
- professional responsibility and best practices — keep your wits about you
- your arsenal of tools with which to respond to misconduct — don't get mad, instead get an order
