Published by California Employment Lawyers Association and National Employment Lawyers Association

Materials can be downloaded under the "Other Resources" tab.

Many CELA members practice primarily in state court and are uncomfortable when they find themselves removed to federal court. Sound familiar? Join this webinar! Experienced federal practitioners will explain how Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure can serve as a road map to successful federal litigation. The panel, moderated by Matthew C. Helland, will cover the ins and outs of the Rule 26 disclosure requirements, provide tips on using Rule 26 to your advantage, and point you to helpful forms and templates.
