Law & Motion: The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth – A Perspective from the Bench
Presented by the Beverly Hills Bar Association Litigation Section
April 13 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm PDT
1 hour General CLE Credit
This program will focus on the art of persuasion, the “Dos and Don’ts” of law and motion. Tune in to learn everything you ever wanted to know about law and motion but were too afraid to ask.
Having served as an Independent Calendar Judge in the West District for over 14 years, ruling on upwards of 7,500 motions, if not more, with as many as 730 general jurisdiction cases assigned to him at one time, recently retired Judge Karlan has handled a complex and complicated law and motion calendar under a variety of circumstances and time constraints.
In this program Judge Karlan will provide insight from his over twenty years on the bench, including motions to quash, demurrers, motions to strike/anti-SLAPP motions, MSJs, electronic service, discovery and motions in limine. HOWEVER, beyond the technical legal requirements, successful motion practice requires careful crafting, a compelling argument and attention to detail. It also involves thinking of and paying attention to your Judge, both with respect to what you submit and how you argue.
Hon. Craig D. Karlan (Ret.)
