Episode Notes

Fenwick & West civil practitioner Laurence Pulgram and Schoeman Updike & Kaufman complex litigator Beth Kaufman stop by to discuss amendments that were made to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in this Special Report. In 2010, at a symposium at Duke University, rule amendments to improve civil litigation were proposed and over 2,300 individuals provided input on these changes during the public comments period. On April 29th, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court approved and submitted to Congress the proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and these amendments took effect on December 1, 2015. However, many lawyers are not aware of these changes. Beth and Laurence, along with The Digital Edge host Jim Calloway and Thinking Like A Lawyer host Joe Patrice, sit down to discuss some of the changes and best practices to help you save money and expedite managing your case.
