Litigation in any venue is very much akin to a sport – it is played by set rules and standards. Understanding and abiding by those rules is key to success. Carol G. Morokoff is a New York litigator with 28 years of experience playing by the rules and adapting them to her clients’ benefit. In this course, Ms. Morokoff gives tips on which of the rules are most important, which are very helpful, and which can simply make a litigator’s life easier.
