NYSBA - Federal Civil Practice: A Primer

December 5, 2013 • New York, NY


The Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association is pleased to offer an up-to-date, timely, and traditionally popular day-long course on basic federal civil practice. This course will focus on practice and procedure in the federal district court and is designed to familiarize the general practitioner, the general litigator, or other attorney who has not had extensive exposure to the federal court system with the theory, practice, and tactics of litigating civil matters in federal court. The agenda includes a special segment on ethics.

In addition to discussing the law of federal court practice, the speakers will offer helpful, practical tips and guidance on handling all aspects of a civil case in federal court, based upon their own respective experiences and favored tactics. The program is designed to provide practical “nuts-and-bolts” information and places particular emphasis on discovery, including discussion of the most recent developments concerning discovery of electronically stored information. The faculty will highlight many of the differences between civil practice in state court and in the federal district court. Opportunities will be scheduled for questions from the audience.

This course should also be a useful review for more experienced practitioners who may want to brush up on their skills and knowledge.

Daniel Edelman is one of the speakers on the topic of "Commencement of the Action."
