Brendan Judge and Jennifer Critchley, partners in Connell Foley’s Commercial Litigation Group, are speakers at the National Business Institute (NBI) seminar on “Representing Your Client in Federal Court.” This in-depth program, which will be held in Newark, NJ on May 12, reviews federal rules and local procedures and will walk attendees through the life of a case to ensure compliance and boost the chances of success.
Ms. Critchley will present on: “Developing a Successful Trial Strategy,” examining the key elements of a strong case, how to assess a case’s weak points, and appellate issues that should be addressed; and “Federal Trial: What You Didn’t Learn in Law School,” which will cover local rules, final pretrial order, bench vs. jury trials and trial logistics.
Mr. Judge will likewise provide two presentations: "Recent Amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Ethical Issues Addressed in Recent ABA Opinions and Resolutions," which will examine ethics cannons and recent ABA opinions, conflicts of interest, appropriate client communications and protecting confidentiality.
