Litigation Training – Online on-demand training covers everything from courtroom etiquette to legal writing.

Litigation TrainingLitigation Training
You go to court to win, not for justice.
Get up to speed fast on representing yourself. Take 1-hour video courses whenever you like. Memorize the course cheat sheet to master the essentials. Take multiple-choice quizzes and get scored on the material.

Litigation Training

You need this training when:

  • You believe you can tell the judge what happened and he’ll just sort it all out.
  • You can’t anticipate the other side’s moves, or you can’t plan your own.
  • You’ve never written a winning motion.
  • You have no idea how to find authoritative support for your legal arguments.

You need this training when you’re involved in litigation, period.

The curriculum includes three courses that every pro se litigant should have. Other courses, such as advanced appellate procedure or oral argument, are helpful in those particular situations.

With a little training, the judge will ask where you studied law, and the other side’s lawyers will work for their fees.

The other side’s lawyer doesn’t use the court’s forms.
Neither should you. Those forms are for the court’s convenience, not yours. They’re designed to help the judge drill down to a quick decision, but that doesn’t always serve the parties, especially the pro se litigant. Slow things down and get your bearings by filing your own motions.

Pleading Builder

Look good in court:

  • Enter caption and certificate of service automatically.
  • Use a template to draft other parts of your pleadings.
  • Save your drafts and work on them as often as you like.

  • View a list of your pleadings and edit them as needed.

When you’ve finished your masterpiece, print a PDF version that’s ready to file and serve on other parties.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Use a curated list of legal sources to find cases, statutes, codes and other authorities.

  • View a list of your research and click related documents.
