Session 1: Genuine Issues on Summary Judgments - Discuss trends in summary judgment practice with an emphasis on the challenges during appellate review. Analyze pleadings, scope of review, summary judgment evidence, conclusory or defective evidence, and harmless error. Session 2: ​Form Contracts That Don’t Mean What They Say - In an age when plain-text interpretation dominates cases of contract construction, it is surprising how many contracts do not mean what they plainly say—especially in certain widely used form contracts.

Listen to a discussion about the consequences this has had on parties, counsel, and the courts. Session 4: Harmless Error - Review recent developments affecting whether your error is deemed judgment-critical or swept "under the rug." more »
