The Michigan Judicial Institute (MJI) is pleased to offer a seminar and webinar on the new discovery rules for all judges handling a civil docket. The new discovery rules, adopted June 19, 2019 and effective January 1, 2020, are the first holistic update to the rules in a generation. The new rules stress active case management and proportionality in discovery, and provide trial courts with various new tools. This seminar will highlight the important changes to the civil discovery rules and offer practical advice for case management and discovery issues. Participation in this seminar will be available both in-person and online.
