In order to be an effective and ethical advocate for one’s client in the courtroom, an attorney should understand the basic rules of evidence and know how to use those rules to admit important pieces of evidence. In addition, the attorney should have a basic understanding of some of the ethical issues that arise during a trial.
The webinar is geared toward new attorneys and attorneys with limited trial experience. The course will focus on common evidentiary issues that arise during trial, relevant rules of evidence and will feature some demonstrations on laying foundations. The topics will include the four basic hurdles to admissibility of evidence, social media evidence, cell phone records, business records, official records, photographs and videos.
