Evidence Issues and Jury Instructions in Employment Cases
February 08 - February 09, 2007
During this two-day program, co-sponsored with ALI-ABA, you will be able to examine vital evidence and jury instruction issues that arise in employment cases. Lawyers’ ability to get their cases into evidence frequently determines the outcome. Since passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, courts have more carefully scrutinized the evidence proffered by each side. Faulty jury instructions may result in a loss of all gains derived in the trial court. The drafting of jury instructions, however, continues to bedevil practitioners and judges.
