Bench and Bar
Evidence in the Courtroom
Rules of Evidence. Easy in concept but vexing in practice. Cases are won or lost through battles over whether certain pieces of key evidence will be admitted, yet the process is still mysterious.
This CLE is for those practitioners interested in a look into the minds of those who decide what evidence will be admitted. A panel of three local judges will discuss issues that arise in their courtrooms involving the presentation of evidence at hearings or trials. Topics will include: whether state and federal courts have different rules or practices regarding evidence, what the Rules of Evidence require for admission of electronically stored information, and how to present evidence for maximum effect. The judges will discuss their experiences with evidentiary issues and offer their insights as to how to make your best arguments to get your evidence in or to keep the other side’s evidence out.
Please join us after the presentation for a reception with snacks and drinks.
