The challenge I've encountered since completing my paralegal certificate 2 years ago is...how shall I put this? Really just not knowing what my job is supposed to be, trying to reinvent the wheel without confirmation of whether I'm doing it correctly. "On-the-job-training" has meant I'm going to make my best guess under pressure with little or no guidance, and that's been hard for me because I care deeply about doing good work. Providing legal support feels like trying to assemble a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle without the picture on the outside of the box. I was looking for that picture on the box. The tools provided in this course are helping me understand where to focus my energy. I wish I'd known about you right out of school. The segment on production is a little vague in terms of what I actually encounter - probably more applicable in larger firms, but it's good reference. I got the most out of the master case book, discovery management, and e-discovery chapters. I think you are providing an enormous service to the profession by offering these classes - I haven't seen anything like them anywhere (and have a hard time understanding why not!) Good on you, Miracle Worker!

What's Inside

Module 1 - A Shift in Mindset

litigation trainingIn this module, we'll lead you through three main sections, with video lessons, downloads, and a live coaching call to give you a new mindset and beliefs on:

1.  You Can Be a Rockstar Paralegal NOW. We'll be covering some of the limiting mindsets that others may be giving you, like that it takes 10 or 20 years to be a really great litigation paralegal. 

2.  You Own Your Career.  Taking ownership of your career means you don't let others determine how successful you can be.

3.  How to Use Project Management and Problem-Solving to Advance Your Career.  Attorneys want you to solve their problems, so we're going to step up your problem-solving and project management mindset.

After completing this module, you will:

  • Be the Ninja Problem-Solver that every attorney wants on their team
  • Have a mindset-shifting model to use that will help you continuously stay in the right mindset
  • Not let others determine or limit your success
  • Be the Project Manager of your cases, instead of the task-master who gets piecemeal projects
  • Have the confidence to know when to speak up when something is going wrong on a case or a project

What's Inside

Module 2 - Develop the Behaviors of a Rockstar Paralegal

litigation trainingIn this module, we'll lead you through three main sections, with video lessons, downloads, a master case book, and a live coaching call to give you a new mindset and beliefs on:

1.  Be the Proactive Case Manager.  In this part of the course, we're going to give you the foundation for managing ALL of your cases proactively so that you'll know what the attorney needs before they ask for it.  This will reduce those last-minute scrambles AND show you how to know every aspect of your cases.

2.  Pay Attention to Detail.  A lack of attention to detail is one of the biggest factors in attorneys losing trust in their litigation paralegals. You get solid methods to use to make sure that you look at all of the details, instead of just proofreading.

3.  Master Your Time Management.  There are only so many hours in the day. As a litigation paralegal, your deadlines are dictated by the court, so there's no such thing as getting something done late. We'll show you how to be the master of your time.

After completing this module, you will:

  • Have an organization system to manage all of the information coming in on your cases
  • Know what the attorney needs before they ask for it
  • Reduce those last-minute scrambles
  • Be the master of time management and get out of the office sooner
  • Eliminate mistakes to build trust and credibility with your attorneys

What's Inside

Module 3 - The Pleadings and Motions Phase

litigation paralegal trainingEven if it's the associates in your firm who are typically drafting the pleadings and motions, as a litigation paralegal your case management starts when that complaint is being drafted (if you're on the Plaintiff's side) or when it's served on your client.

1.  The Fundamentals.  They taught you the theory in terminology in paralegal school, but not what your role is during the pleadings and motions phase of a litigation case. This is the litigation paralegal training you've been waiting for. Ask any litigation paralegal who's been working for more than a few years...How many times have you written an IRAC memo that they taught you in school? Not once.

2.  The Relevant Rules.  You don't need to memorize the Rules of Civil Procedure. You just need an easy way to find the relevant rules quickly. And it doesn't have anything to do with going down the Google rabbit hole.

3.  Back to the Basics with the Blue Book.  In this section, we're changing things up a little! You'll get access to an online Blue Booking assessment and training tool that helps you practice citations and then learn where you need to focus your litigation training.

After completing this module, you will:

  • Know what you can be doing during this phase of the case to be a huge asset to the legal team
  • Be able to find the relevant rule in the least amount of time and how to use the court rules to guide you in everything you do as a litigation paralegal
  • What to do the minute the complaint comes in
  • How to BlueBook like a pro

What's Inside

Module 4 - The Discovery Phase of Your Case

litigation paralegal trainingIn this module, we focus all of our attention on the discovery phase, because it is this phase when a skilled litigation paralegal can be the biggest asset to a litigation attorney.

1.  Begin With the End in Mind.  Mastering case management means seeing the big picture and planning for where the case is going and planning now how we are going to get there. 

2.  General Discovery Principles.  They teach you what discovery is at school, but they don't teach you what it is a litigation paralegal does during the discovery phase that can be so valuable to the attorneys. In this lesson, you will learn all the expected litigation paralegal duties and more.

3.  Drafting Discovery Like a Pro.  We make drafting discovery requests and responses easy with a technique that will work on all types of litigation cases.  We include exercises and templates to show paralegals how to become the master of discovery drafting on their litigation team, even when they must draft discovery from scratch without a form or a template.

4.  Preparing for Depositions.  Preparing for depositions is more than the notice and the subpoena.  Those are forms that anyone can cut and paste.  So instead, we provide litigation paralegals with a step-by-step plan to eliminate those last-minute scrambles before a deposition.

5.  Ediscovery for Everyone. Even if you work in a smaller firm or work on smaller cases, as a litigation paralegal, you will need to know what to do when those emails, messages, and social media posts get produced in a case.

After completing this module, you will:

  • Know how to be a master of the discovery phase of your cases
  • Have a step-by-step method for drafting discovery requests and responses
  • Be able to prepare your attorney for depositions
  • Manage the deposition process
  • Start preparing the trial notebook during the discovery phase
  • Be able to conduct your privilege reviews with ease

What's Inside

Module 5 - Trial Prep Skills

litigation trainingEven if you don't anticipate going to trial often, by knowing what is needed at trial you can manage all of your cases better from the start.

Remember - it's never too early to begin preparing for trial! But we also show you what to do when you're thrown in at the last minute and have to get up to speed fast.

In this module, we'll lead you through five (5) main sections, with video lessons, downloads, checklists, and a live coaching call focused on everything related to preparing for and attending trials and arbitrations.

1.  Start Your Trial Prep.  In this lesson, we start with the Trial Prep Checklist which comes from decades of preparing for dozens of trials. You will get the most comprehensive trial planning list you will ever need throughout your litigation paralegal career.

2. Mastering Trial Technology.  In this lesson, you get an in-depth understanding of how to incorporate the available technology into your trial prep and into the courtroom. You also get an outsourcing checklist and a step-by-step setup for when you are the "hot seat" person. 

3.  Managing the Evidence.  In this lesson, it's all about the Trial Exhibit List, the witnesses, deposition designations, and everything you need to manage all of the evidence throughout your trial prep period so that when you get to the courtroom, you can find any piece of evidence quickly. 

4.  War Rooms and Witness Prep.  As we get closer to the start of the trial, it's time to set up a trial war room and prepare for the witness prep meetings. You get everything you need to be a huge asset to the trial team during this phase of trial prep. 

5.  Your Role Inside the Courtroom.  Now that the trial is getting ready to start, we get you a plan for setting up your workspace in the courtroom, assisting with voir dire, tracking the evidence, and so much more!

After completing this module, you will:

  • Have a comprehensive trial checklist to use for many years to come
  • Know what the attorney needs in the courtroom so that you can be prepared
  • Reduce those last-minute scrambles that can be typical during trial
  • Know how to do deposition designations with ease
  • Have a comprehensive plan for setting up technology in the courtroom 
  • Be a confident trial paralegal

What's Inside

Module 6- Paralegal Technology Skills

litigation paralegal trainingIn this module, we focus on various paralegal technology skills that you need for success, whether you are working for a small firm, an AmLaw 100 firm, or in-house in a corporate legal department.

1.  Communication Technology.  Times have changed. We no longer rely on telephone and email for our main communications. In this lesson, we cover the various communication technologies that a litigation paralegal needs to be comfortable using.

2.  Litigation Technology.  Even if you don't have expensive case management software at your current employment, you still need to be familiar with what's available and how it works. 

3.  Microsoft Word, Excel, and Adobe.  We're switching things up a little in this lesson and giving you access to an online tool that will show you everything these powerful software tools can do to help you be more efficient in your work. It includes hands-on practice and assessment with real-life legal documents.

After completing this module you will:

  • Be the master of technology at your firm
  • Know how to use Word, Excel, and Adobe to their fullest potential
  • Be aware of litigation technology options that can help you manage your cases
  • Be more comfortable with various communication technologies

The attorney will think you're a mind-reader. Or a rockstar litigation paralegal.

And that's only the beginning!

Your Instructor

Ann Pearson

I personally cannot wait to guide you over the next 12 weeks...

I have SO MUCH to share with you to help you fast-track your paralegal career!

As a former litigation paralegal and then paralegal manager, I saw firsthand how hard it was for new paralegals to get the on-the-job training necessary to be successful in their new paralegal position. Too often, I would see paralegals give up because they didn't think they were cut out to be a paralegal. Or they'd believe that it just takes years of experience to figure things out. 

I wanted to fix that, which is why I developed the Litigation Paralegal Boot Camp.  You hear things like - you just have to put in the years and eventually, you'll get there.  

I am here to tell you that it absolutely does NOT have to take 5, 10, or 15 years to get there.  Well, that is, unless you wait around for the attorneys to give you on-the-job training, or you wait for your mentor to show you how to be a great paralegal. 

I've been teaching this program now for ten years and I can promise you that you will learn more about being a litigation paralegal in this program than you learned in your one-year paralegal certificate program.

I look forward to seeing you inside the Litigation Paralegal Boot Camp!

All my best,

Ann Pearson
