IAALS’ Report on “A Forum for Understanding and Comment on the Federal Rules Amendments”

IAALS drafted this report coming out of its Forum for Understanding and Comment on the Federal Rules Amendments, which was held on December 5, 2013.

The Forum brought together a group of approximately forty lawyers, academics, and judges from around the country, with diverse practices and viewpoints, including both plaintiff and defense. IAALS Executive Director Rebecca Love Kourlis facilitated a discussion of each of the proposed amendments, as grouped by the Advisory Committee on Civil Rules.

The Report provides additional background and a summary of the discussion.
