On September 1, 2018, the New Jersey Supreme Court ordered numerous and substantive amendments to the Rules of Court. These amendments were the product of a lengthy process involving comments from the Bar, litigants, the Judiciary and the various Supreme Court practice committees. Presented by Thomas J. Major, Principal at Offit Kurman, this program reviews the amendments most likely to affect civil practitioners, with a focus on the underlying rationale for each change. The program considers the adopted amendments and contrasts them with proposals rejected by the practice committees. With this focus and comparison, viewers will learn both the changes to the Rules and their underlying rationale.
