Foundations of Evidence: Social Media Evidence
The impact of social media platforms cannot be ignored. They are influencing how people communicate and how lawyers litigate. As is often the case, technological innovation has outpaced the law. However, the law is catching up. Join Jevon and Peter as they analyze some of the evidentiary considerations that courts have grappled with when it comes to social media in litigation.
– Jevon C. Bindman; Maslon LLP
– Peter Doely; Maslon LLP

Wednesday, October 23, 2019
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Foundations of Evidence: Witness Examination Rules
Lawyers are better advocates when they understand the policy reasons behind the witness examination rules. Fundamentally, these rules should be construed and applied to facilitate a search for the truth, guarantee a fair trial, and protect witnesses from harassment. Join Judge Wahl for an insightful discussion of how Article 6 of the Minnesota Rules of Evidence furthers these goals and how they can help you become a better advocate.
– Honorable Edward T. Wahl; Hennepin County District Court

Thursday, October 24, 2019
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Foundations of Evidence: Opinions and Expert Testimony
Opinion testimony, whether given by lay witnesses or by a seasoned expert, is often a critical component of modern trial advocacy. Minnesota Rules of Evidence 701 – 706 serve as a check upon the admissibility of evidence that can be very persuasive to a fact finder. Join Brian Kluk for a closer look at these rules.
– Brian J. Kluk; McCollum Crowley Moschet Miller & Laak, Ltd.

Wednesday, October 30, 2019
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL TIME)
Foundations of Evidence: Privilege
Minnesota’s privilege statute is intended to protect special relationships that are based upon confidentiality, free communication, and trust; however, this protection is not unbridled. The courts will and do control the applicability of privileges. This presentation addresses Minnesota’s privilege statute, the Minnesota courts’ interpretation of it, and federal treatment of the various privileges.
– Kari Berman; Cozen O’Connor
