Description:

This webinar will provide family law counsel with approaches for defending the admissibility of evidence in divorce cases. The panel will discuss laying the foundation for exhibits, review authenticating and introducing different types of evidence, and identify ways to restrict evidence and testimony.

Description

A working knowledge of the intricacies of the rules of evidence is a must for family law practitioners to achieve a successful result in any contested court proceeding. Counsel must be able to properly lay the foundation for and correctly introduce evidence in divorce cases.

Counsel must utilize proper procedures for authenticating and admitting exhibits, from writings and photos to emails, text messages, websites, and social media. Developing effective approaches for restricting improper evidence, making proper objections, and setting forth offers of proof is also critical.

Listen as our panel of family law practitioners discusses best practices to prepare evidence for admission at trial and outlines strategies for restricting improper evidence. The panel will offer their insights into making proper objections and offers of proof.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
