Motion practice is at the center of civil litigation. To be effective,
litigators at all levels of experience must have a firm grasp on the
procedural and substantive issues affecting each potential motion.
Understanding the bedrock legal principles and recent developments in
the law and court rules is crucial both to evaluating whether to
recommend making a contemplated motion and to making and opposing
motions effectively. This distinguished panel of judges and experienced
practitioners will provide guidance on how to decide whether to file a
motion, when to file it, how to persuasively make and respond to
motions, and tips for effective oral argument. This program will
primarily cover motions for expedited relief (temporary restraining
order, preliminary injunction), motions to dismiss, summary judgment
motions, discovery motions, and motions to seal. The panelists will
provide expert insight and guidance to help you foster and hone the
motion practice skills necessary to succeed in civil practice in New
York State and Federal Courts.
