Outside-The-Box Discovery Tools: Getting Creative With Discovery In The Era Of Proportionality, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
Practitioners may fall into habits and routines and, in doing so, lose sight of creative ways to use discovery advantageously. This panel is designed to change those habits and provide refreshing insights into old tools as well as new techniques like fighting “proportionality” and using it to plaintiffs’ advantage. Our approach will be pragmatic, covering several discovery tools in sufficient depth to give practitioners real-world strategies they can immediately put to use. For instance, we will propose new ideas for using Rule 30(b)(6) depositions, requests for admission, Rule 34 requests for entry on land, and share drafts of effective interrogatories instead of the usual canned requests. We will also focus on both offensive and defensive discovery techniques in light of the December 2015 amendments to Rule 26 to include proportionality as a component of the scope of discovery.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.
