Thursday, 14. March 2019, LA Law Library, Civil Lawsuit Basics: Getting Another Party to Answer Questions in Writing (Interrogatories and RFAs)

Class covers:

The purpose of interrogatories (questions to another party regarding contentions, facts, witnesses and documents in the case)
The purpose of requests for admissions (statements another party must deny or admit)
Common uses for these discovery tools
