As fewer civil cases are tried, the staples of pretrial practice -- pleadings, motions to dismiss, discovery, Daubert motions, summary judgment, and settlement -- have replaced trials as the focus of litigation. This Practising Law Institute seminar, held in Chicago on 21 September 2012, examined how the changing nature of pretrial practice will affect the future of litigation. NERA Senior Vice President Lucy P. Allen, who is frequently retained to testify as an expert witness, participated in a panel discussion on the use of experts. Ms. Allen and her co-panelists discussed when to retain experts, testifying vs. consulting experts, protecting expert communications, preparing expert reports, taking discovery of experts, and Daubert motions.
