Evidence Basics: Helping to Make Sure Your Client’s Story is Heard

April 18, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Presenters: Hon. Shaun Floerke, Judge, Minnesota’s Sixth Judicial District Court, and Nancy Ver
Steegh, Professor of Law, Mitchell Hamline School of Law
A court’s decision is only as good as the information it receives, but this information has to be presented
correctly to be sure it’s considered. With the safety and well-being of your clients and their children at
stake, getting the necessary facts before the court is crucial. Courts have rules about evidence so that
judges will make decisions based on reliable information, not gossip and guesswork. Although the rules
can be confusing, they are designed to protect the parties’ rights, and they should be used to help plan
for your client’s court appearance. This webinar will introduce the nuts and bolts of evidence and allow
you to support your client with a better understanding of what happens in court. (60 minutes)
