Motions in limine, when used effectively, can help deliver a favorable jury verdict. Trial lawyers file motions in limine at or before the start of a trial and ask the judge to limit the jury from hearing or seeing certain evidence for various reasons. As a result, these motions present a unique opportunity for each side to shape the trial before it even happens.

Not all trial lawyers use motions in limine effectively. Some see motions in limine as one more task to check off the list when preparing for trial, without realizing their tremendous power to determine the story that jurors will hear.

The next installment in our Trial Education Series, “Leveraging Motions in Limine to Win Your Trial and Appeal,” will highlight how to make the most of motions in limine to increase your chance of influencing the jury verdict, and create a strong record for appeal. Specifically, our presenters will address:

  • Strategic timing for filing a motion in limine
  • What should (and should not) be included in a motion in limine
  • How to leverage a favorable ruling on a motion in limine at trial
  • How to use a motion in limine to build an effective appellate record, even if your motion is denied
