Litigation 101: Checklists for New Litigators


Complexity is the hallmark of modern litigation. It is too easy to get caught up in the particulars of a case and skip a step that may seem insignificant. In litigation, nothing is insignificant. That is why even seasoned litigators turn to checklists. Consider these checklists a practical supplement to the knowledge you acquired in law school and during your associateships.

Special thanks to the Young Lawyers Division, Maralee McDonald, and the authors of the checklists for providing these invaluable aids to litigation practice.
