Why Attend?

In two short hours, experienced trial lawyers will give you:

  • News you can use—the latest changes in civil litigation practice and procedure
  • Expert advice on working smarter and dodging traps for the unwary
  • Handy written materials covering significant state and federal case reports and statutory developments in the last year

You’re busy—but so are the courts and legislature. How can you easily keep up with changes to the law and important decisions that affect your civil litigation practice?

Let our experienced trial lawyers do the hard work for you. They not only will digest the changes to the law in the past year, but also will tell you what the changes mean, and how you can profit. While not every case they discuss will be of interest to you, it is nearly certain that several will be “difference makers” in your practice, and amply repay your investment of two hours. There is a reason this long-running seminar has been a favorite over the years: it delivers the news you can use, without the fluff.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Amendments to the Virginia Code
  • Key decisions from the Virginia Supreme Court and Court of Appeals of Virginia
  • Federal court decisions that affect you and your Virginia practice
  • Changes in Virginia and federal procedural and evidentiary laws affecting matters such as:
    • Jurisdiction, venue, and service
    • Causes of action and damages
    • Affirmative defenses
    • Pleading, practice, and procedure
    • Trial proceedings and evidence
    • Appellate practice
    • Settlement

Registration Deadline:
Telephone: Online registration ends at 11:59 p.m. the day preceding the seminar
Call (800) 979-8253 to register up to one hour prior to the seminar

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation/transfer requests will be honored until 5:00 p.m. the day preceding the seminar. You will, however, be charged $40 if you cancel or transfer your registration to a different seminar after the link to the materials has been e-mailed by Virginia CLE.

Full refunds or transfers are available up to two days after a webcast in the unlikely event that you experience technical difficulties.

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance. If you enter a seminar late or leave it early, or both, you must reflect those adjustments accurately in the credits you report on your credit reporting form. A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
