March 15 Program on Preparing & Presenting Effective Damages Case

March 11, 2011 – 

Preparing and presenting an effective, comprehensive damages argument requires the coordination of several experts and a thorough understanding of:

  • the roles of each of the experts
  • what each expert will need in terms of discovery
  • how the contributions of each expert are best integrated into the damages argument and presented at settlement negotiations and at trial.

Speakers at “Preparing and Presenting the Damages Case,” the March 15, 2011 program at Rutgers School of Law–Newark, will highlight, via a hypothetical auto accident involving four people, the major issues involved in preparing and presenting an effective damages case, from both the plaintiff and defense perspective. The program is sponsored by the Rutgers Institute for Professional Education.

Pre-registration is required. The program is free for those not seeking Continuing Legal Education or Continuing Professional Education credit. There is a $125 fee ($100 for Rutgers Law alumni) for those seeking CLE/CPE credit – 4.0 CLE credit hours (NJ & NY) including 1.0 ethics credit hour; 3.5 CLE credit hours (PA) including 1.0 ethics credit; and 4.0 CPE credit hours.
