Fundamental Sunrise Series

The Civil Litigation Section is pleased to offer Litigation Fundamentals Sunrise Series. At each one-hour program you will hear from two experienced litigators on the key practice points critical to the topic at hand. The presenters will provide examples of "good" and "bad" practice and will provide you with an opportunity to ask your pressing questions. This series is designed for new lawyers, those new to civil litigation and those looking for a refresher on the fundamentals.

Offered one day a month, the Litigation Fundamentals Sunrise Series is offered free of charge for Civil Litigation Section members. This program is BYOB - Bring Your Own Breakfast! From 8 am to 9 am, join us in person or dial-in from the comfort of your home office or boardroom.
