Federal court is a world of its own. Part I of this two-part series, led by attorney Maria-Vittoria Carminati, is aimed at taking you through federal rules of procedure and provide attendees with the anatomy of a federal case. While the FRCP could occupy a semester’s worth of classes, this course gives you the structure of a federal case.
Starting with a petition, followed by rules to serve, the requirements for filing a motion to dismiss, and the FRCP 26 disclosures, you will no longer feel overwhelmed and lost when managing a federal case. This course provides plaintiffs and defendants with a roadmap to the federal court system.

I enjoyed the presenter's style-very practical approach to to the way she explained things-
A very good primer, but as the speaker stated, a full explanation of Rule 26 deserves a full course of its own, but she covered it pretty well in the limited time available to her
Thank you for an outstanding presentation
Nice Job !!!
One of the most concise CLEs on FCP
Great program full of useful information and guidance!
This is the best description of the Federal Rules I’ve had and how to use them.
Nice job, hope to see more courses from her (particularly on commercial litigation in Fed or NY courts!).
Great program! Would definitely like to see it extended to cover the rest of the FRCP in a similar introductory depth. I really appreciated the practical points.
