    Hello "Proportionality," Goodbye "Reasonably Calculated": Reinventing Case Management and Discovery Under the 2015 Civil Rules Amendments

    9 AM PDT

    Online registration for this program is now closed. If you are interested in attending the program and have not yet registered please fill out the onsite registration form and bring that with you to the program.

     

    The most significant changes to discovery and case management practices in more than a decade, the 2015 Amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 16, 26, 34 and 37, took effect on December 1, 2015. The American Bar Association Section of Litigation and the Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies are jointly presenting this unprecedented, 18-city series of dialogues, led by national thought leaders and including local judges, magistrates, and top practitioners in each city. The goal: to further the understanding of the case-management techniques that will help courts and litigants realize the Amendments’ full potential to make discovery more targeted, less expensive, and more effective in achieving justice.


    Based on local requests, this popular program has been expanded from the original 13- city tour to 18.  Each three-hour program features leaders from the Rules amendment process, who walk the audience through the Amendments and their implications for civil litigation.  Spirited panel discussions among local District Court Judges, Magistrate Judges, and leading litigators then explore the Amendments’ practical discovery implications and best practices for case management under the amended Rules. Each program’s attendees discuss application of the new rules to a variety of hypothetical cases and leave with a toolbox of techniques for putting the Amendments into practice.
