Ensure that you have an up-to-date grasp of the evidentiary principles that apply whether your case settles or proceeds to trial.

With relatively few cases proceeding through trial to judgment these days, legal professionals increasingly lack the courtroom experience that forges a thorough grasp of the law of evidence.

But as experienced litigators know, such an understanding is critical to shaping the strategy of your case and assessing its strength, and to maximizing the odds of a favourable judgment in the event that no settlement is reached. One can’t competently undertake a litigation file without asking “What can I prove?” and “What can I prevent the other side from proving?”

This latest version of OsgoodePD’s acclaimed program will equip you to answer these questions with confidence and authority.

  • For counsel with limited trial experience, this is a prime opportunity to get the benefit of what experienced practitioners and judges have to say about navigating evidentiary challenges.
  • For those who already have significant trial experience, it’s an opportunity to ensure that your knowledge remains current, while deepening your insight into points that were always in need of clarification.

At any level of experience, The Civil Litigator’s Survival Guide To Evidence provides practical knowledge you’ll apply to your negotiations, discoveries, motions, pretrials and trials.
