New Jersey Civil Litigation Basics (for those recently admitted)

Program Number
Program Date
CLE Credits

This is a short summary of how New Jersey practice is similar to, and different from, practice in other states and in federal court. It is designed for attorneys who already practice elsewhere. Procedurally it will go over the terms and language specific to New Jersey practice; the “rhythm” of how a lawsuit is litigated through discovery, motion practice, expert testimony and trial; and how New Jersey courts typically “do” things. Substantively it will summarize features of evidence law and procedural law (such as to statutes of limitations) which might be surprising to attorneys stepping into a New Jersey courtroom for the first time.
