When Virginia lawmakers increased the jurisdictional limit in General District Courts from $15,000 to $25,000 in 2011, the number of cases filed skyrocketed. Although litigation in the General District Court certainly has its advantages such as quicker resolution and savings on experts, there are also pitfalls to avoid.  

This course, presented by Amy L. Bradley, reviews the issues that litigators will want to consider in deciding whether General District Court is the best jurisdiction to file, the statutory scheme governing such cases, and the pitfalls to avoid. 

Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify cases which are appropriate candidates for General District Court litigation
  2. Gain familiarity with the statutory scheme governing personal injury actions in the General District Court
  3. Learn to spot issues and preempt arguments from the defense
  4. Obtain practical advice on reducing trial mishaps
  5. Understand the appeal process
