Course Materials

This CLE course will provide expert guidance on the strategic use of motions in limine in employment litigation. Our panel will help counsel for plaintiffs and defendants alike spot recurring issues and show how well conceived and appropriately crafted motions in limine can ensure that critical evidence is excluded or admitted at trial.


Strategically filed motions in limine – in contrast to a scattershot or standardized approach – can set the stage for success in employment trials by keeping inadmissible evidence out of the courtroom. Moreover, advanced rulings on critical evidentiary issues facilitate counsel’s ability to develop case themes and define the parameters of a trial while ensuring jurors are not swayed by highly prejudicial evidence. Motions in limine can also serve as an effective tool for preserving the record for appeal.

Listen as our authoritative panel of employment litigators discusses how to strategically leverage motions in limine in bringing and defending employment lawsuits. The panel will explore recurring evidentiary issues that arise in employment litigation and offer guidance on effectively planning, drafting and timing motions in limine.



  1. Recurring evidence issues in employment litigation
  2. Bringing motions in limine
  3. Opposing motions in limine
  4. Preserving an issue for appeal after losing a motion in limine


The panel will discuss these and other key issues:

  • What timing considerations should counsel take into account when filing motions in limine?
  • What steps should counsel take to preserve an objection for appeal following the denial of a motion in limine?
  • What categories of evidence may warrant a motion in limine seeking to admit evidence?
  • How can counsel leverage motions in limine to obtain dispositive rulings?
  • How should motions in limine be drafted and presented to the Court?
