With perspectives from both plaintiff’s and defense counsel, our seasoned litigators share valuable insights and practice tips to strengthen your motions. Examine effective ORCP 21 and FRCP 12 motions and learn how to craft a discovery plan tailored to your case. Discover ways to effectively argue (or oppose) summary judgment motions before the court, and take a look at trial motions, including motions in limine and motions for a directed verdict or mistrial. The post-trial motions session covers JNOV, new trials, and remittitur. In addition, review ethical considerations for motion practice and gain an understanding of anti-SLAAP motions.
