Anatomy of Complex Civil Litigation
The course will be taught by attorney general office-based subject matter experienced attorneys and NAGTRI trained faculty members. The Complex Civil Litigation program focuses on claims involving large, well-represented and well-funded parties in multi-state litigation.

In conjunction with the presentations, participants will participate in faculty facilitated small group discussions making use of a hypothetical case to enhance their skills regarding selection and use of investigative tools, melding case theory and discovery, making and responding to pretrial motions, multi-state cooperation and issues, and witness selection and presentation.
