Registration is closed for this event.

Learn how employee-side attorneys draft complaints to best meet the Iqbal and Twombly pleading standard, hunt for relevant information necessary to prove the employee’s case in discovery, and resist defense attempts to bar a trial by jury through summary judgment motions.

Hear from management attorneys on how they hold their opponents to the plausibility standard at the pleading stage, cabin discovery to embrace only what is appropriate and proportional to the case in controversy, and draft effective summary judgment motions.

Finally, hear from three of our judges who will share their wisdom on how both sides can improve their pleading and motions practice.

The CLE is organized into three panels:

 

 

 

Program Chair: R. Scott Oswald, The Employment Law Group, P.C.

We anticipate judges, law clerks, and practitioners in attendance. This will be an excellent opportunity to network while learning.

Cancellation is accepted for registrations made two business days before the event. All no-shows will be billed.
