Rule 30(b)(6) Amendments: Eliminating Deficient Subject Lists and Securing Better Prepared Witnesses
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will examine the first substantive amendment to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 30(b)(6) in 50 years, to take effect on Dec. 1, 2020. The panel will review how the amendments came about, the compromises made, and most importantly, what the new "meet and confer" obligation will require from both those issuing notices and from the deponents.
- History of the amendments
- Historic abuses the amendments address
- How the rule will change current federal court practice
- Addressing poorly worded and overbroad topics
- Correcting poorly prepared witnesses
- Rules of evidence to consider during the conference
- Best practices
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are the lessons from proposed but rejected amendments?
- What are the changes for subpoenas and notices of deposition?
- What are the consequences of failing to meet and confer?
- Trial strategy for the meet and confer and Rule 30(b)(6)
- The interplay between Rule 30(b)(6) and the Rule 16 conference
