Management of Mass Torts Part II – Going to Trial

Wednesday, February 24, 2015 | Noon PT / 1:00 p.m. MT / 2:00 p.m. CT / 3:00 p.m. ET

State trial court judges without previous experience adjudicating mass tort cases may feel overwhelmed by the challenges a mass tort filing can create. The experienced faculty at the National Judicial College will empower state trial judges to set the mass tort for trial and manage the large volume of motions, and other case management issues, confronting the trial court judge.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  1. Manage effectively motions in limine.
  2. Apply best practices to jury selection for mass torts even in jurisdictions with a small jury pool.
  3. Manage the trial calendar so that all parties meet established deadlines.
