Program Description

This program will give new employment law practitioners an introduction to the basics of an employment law practice. We will follow a hypothetical case from the plaintiff's initial consultation with counsel through plaintiff's and defendant's investigations and pre-filing considerations, exhaustion issues, discovery, motion practice, ADR, and up to the start of trial.
Experienced employment law practitioners representing both plaintiffs and defendants will offer their insights on common issues that frequently arise in employment law practice. A networking lunch is included.
