Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney shareholder Craig D. Mills will participate in a Pennsylvania Bar Institute CLE course taking place in Philadelphia November 20, 2009, and, again, in Allentown December 4. The course, titled "Civil Litigation in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania — 2009: A Practical Guide for Today's Litigator," will consist of a panel of leading practitioners and federal judges who will discuss what to expect (and what is required) to litigate a civil case successfully in the Eastern District — from pre-filing investigation through trial.

Among the topics to be covered:

  • Pre-Complaint Investigations and Initial Pleadings
  • Class Actions
  • Scheduling & Traditional Discovery
  • Electronic Discovery
  • Witnesses
  • Pre-Trial
  • Settlement vs. Trial
  • The Digital Courtroom
Mills, chair of the firm's Business Litigation and Trial Practice group, will serve as faculty.
