    Continuing the momentum of last year’s “Rules Roadshow”—which addressed how to use the 2015 Federal Rules Amendments to promote efficient discovery—this year’s “Roadshow 2.0” addresses how to promote efficiency in motion practice.

    Like it or not, it’s indisputable:  far more cases are disposed of today through motions than through trials.  Motion practice is the primary way that lawyers persuade judges.  But ill-conceived, unfocused, unnecessary, or poorly crafted motions only weigh down the system, distract from the key issues, and backfire on the movant, while driving up judicial workloads and legal fees and slowing down and degrading resolutions.

    This nationwide series with each program moderatored by Hon. Jeremy Fogel, Director of the Federal Judicial Center, or the Hon. John D. Bates, Chair of the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules,will tackle the challenge of making motions better.  These national thought leaders will lead discussions with local judges and leading plaintiffs’ and defense counsel, analyzing problems with current practice and offering new, better, and cutting edge approaches for resolving interlocutory disputes, including how to:  

    -Employ novel informal processes to narrow disputes or obviate having to file a motion

    -Streamline motions to make them more efficient and powerful

    -Focus the judge’s attention on what really matters

    -Obtain faster decisions and better results

    Judges and lawyers in attendance will leave with an array of new methods to upgrade motion practice, make motions and oppositions more effective, save time and reduce expense, enhance credibility, and lead to better outcomes for clients.
