Summary Trial Essentials 

Oct. 20, 2021

OBA Civil Litigation / Young Lawyers Division PROGRAM
12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

Have you gone to Civil Practice Court to book a summary judgment motion, only to be encouraged by the Court to book a summary trial instead? No longer reserved for simplified procedure matters, summary trials are becoming increasingly popular.  With the increase of the simplified procedure threshold under Rule 76 to $200,000, it is likely that even more matters will be proceeding by way of summary trial. At this timely program, our expert faculty will share valuable insights to ensure you have the knowledge you need, including:

  • Understanding what a summary trial is (and is not)
  • Strategic considerations when determining whether to request (or resist) a matter proceeding by summary trial
  • How to prepare your materials and evidence; and
  • Key strategies and common pitfalls when conducting a summary trial.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity so that you can prepare for and approach your next summary trial with added confidence.
