Starting with the expert report and taking you right up through motions in limine, this program covers federal and state expert disclosure, exchange and report requirements as well as litigation tactics at each stage in the process. The program will cover a lot of ground, with particular emphasis on how to organize the expert's methodology, data, opinions and report into sound conclusions, using, among other methods, a syllogistic approach to formulating and dissecting expert opinions. The speakers will cover the seminal Daubert/Sargon decisions and discuss how to attack and how to defend an expert's report and opinions. The program is presented by Harold Justman, an experienced trial expert witness who has testified in over 100 matters in the last 10 years alone, as well as Sean Ponist and Courtney Baird, both experienced trial attorneys.
