Description

Losing a trial can be devastating to your client. The blow can be compounded if there is no recourse for appeal to reverse an adverse decision. As counsel to your client, properly preserving issues and arguments during a trial can make the difference between reversing a bad result or having to live with it.
In the event that a ruling does not favor your client, you need to capitalize on every opportunity during the trial to preserve issues or arguments for appeal.
The rules for preserving issues can be strict. Failure to appropriately preserve an issue for review by an appellate court can be disastrous, resulting in an appellate court not addressing the merits of the otherwise compelling argument on appeal. Join us for this important CLE program that focuses on how a trial practitioner may preserve, or fail to preserve, a sufficient record for review by an appellate court.
Topics to be covered include:
- Addressing issues in a pretrial order
- What is required to preserve an objection at trial?
- Procedures for timely objections regarding:
> Evidentiary objections
> Jury instructions
> Verdict forms
> Inconsistent verdicts
- When to object, when not to object, and when to press the issue
- How to get a definitive ruling on an objection
