A pre-recorded streaming AUDIO replay of one session from the November 2020 webcast seminar, 41st Annual Construction Law.

Cosponsored with the Construction Law and Public Contracts Section of the Virginia State Bar

This session uses hypotheticals to explore topics of interest to litigators (and transactional lawyers whose clients might face litigation) including such issues as: (1) lawyers' communications (including talking to the press about cases and criticizing judges); (2) deceptive discovery tactics (including tape recording telephone calls, and use of admittedly deceptive tactics in public interest investigations such as housing discrimination tests, and in purely commercial investigations); (3) dealing with fact witnesses (including the permissibility of paying fact witnesses for their time, and preparing them for testimony); (4) claims (including "ghostwriting" pleadings, and filing knowingly time barred claims); (5) settlements (including acceptable levels of deception during settlement negotiations, silence about the law and facts, and the enforceability of settlement agreements); (6) dealing with courts (including the duty to disclose unfavorable facts and law).
