  • This program will provide new attorneys (and those new to New York State practice)  an overall how-to guide for practicing in New York Supreme Court. Panelists will discuss the basics of initiating an action, describe the court parts and what they do, and provide information about getting a judge assigned to the case. The panelists also will provide an overview of the sometimes-confusing relationship between the CPLR, the Uniform Rules for the Trial Courts, and other relevant procedural law and rules. Practical basic tips by seasoned attorneys, judges, and court staff have been compiled to provide new attorneys with a nuts and bolts introduction to civil practice in the Supreme Court.
