Message from the Chairs
The Pretrial Practice and Discovery Committee is committed to providing its members practical tips and current and informative content in various areas involving pretrial practice and discovery. We recognize that our members need to keep updated on rule changes, preserving and discovering electronically stored information, objections to discovery, depositions, and motion practice. As such, we continue to add Practice Points, Sound Advice podcasts, newsletters, and other valuable content on our committee’s website.
Additionally, we plan and sponsor various CLE programs at ABA events, roundtables, and webinars that are specific to the area of pretrial practice and discovery. We encourage our members to check our website for these upcoming programs.
We offer many ways that our members can also be involved with the Pretrial Practice and Discovery Committee. Members may offer practical advice and tips to other members by contacting Jessica Barnes or Jarvarus Gresham about writing a Practice Point, which are short blog-like, 100–750 word practical pieces of advice or tips. If you are interested in writing a longer-form article for our newsletter, please reach out to Joseph Schaeffer or David Moore. If you have practical advice and tips but you are not interested in writing, you can submit a Sound Advice podcast by contacting James Gilbert or propose a Roundtable program by contacting Robin Nunn or Laura Readinger.
We welcome our members to participate in our monthly telephone conferences. The dates and times of our monthly calls are set on our website and we send out reminders with the call-in information through ABA Connect. You can also contact any one of the co-chairs using the contact information provided below to be added to the monthly calendar invitation.
