Includes: Terms associated with the litigation process, distinctions between federal and state court actions (jurisdictions generally), different phases of a civil lawsuit, special statues that affect the mediation process and settlement, confidentiality, and the California Evidence Code.
Who Should Attend?

- For lawyers who want to learn about the State and Federal court litigation process. (MCLE credits – 3.0 hours)
- For all: Great information to expand your knowledge of the various litigation processes. Plus, the CLE credit is often something many DRPA organizations ask that you provide to them as part of your participation in their mediation services.
