  • Description

    This clear and concise book organizes pretrial planning into a series of steps students can easily master. Ordinary law school classes give students very few opportunities to learn about how lawyers prepare and manage cases. Pretrial introduces students to all aspects of case development, litigation, and settlement, ranging from the initial client interview to the analysis of settlement strategy and terms. It provides sample documentation for each stage of the civil case. An invaluable text for law students, Pretrial also gives new lawyers straightforward instruction as they immerse themselves in the real world of litigation practice.
