Advanced 30(b)(6) Seminar

November 7, 2018 | AAJ Headquarters | Washington, DC

People often think Rule 30(b)(6) regarding depositions is only relevant in large federal cases, major corporate litigation, or mass tort cases. That’s a big mistake.

On November 7-8, 2018, AAJ Education is delving deep into the rule at the Advanced 30(b)(6) Seminar. Our faculty will go beyond the basics of the 30(b)(6) deposition and will break down this rule to elucidate and apply its components to real-world case examples.

Registration Fees:
$895 for AAJ Members on or before July 13, 2018
$995 for AAJ Members after July 13th, 2018
