Specialization Program/Practice Series
Our litigation attorneys are trial-tested. In part through our nationally-recognized pro bono program, our attorneys become seasoned advocates early in their career. Through our specialization program, each of our litigators develops proficiency in one or more procedural and/or substantive aspects of litigation, so that the department collectively has focused and expansive knowledge about virtually any issue that recurs in litigation. Read More Our Practice Series books, written by our attorneys and made available as a courtesy to clients, provide a comprehensive survey and basic primer on a myriad of legal issues. They serve as straightforward guides through the changes and evolutions in the law, and present accessible frameworks for analyzing the most pressing issues of the day.

We also systematically monitor the cutting edge of litigation trends.

Each issue provides insights and brief summaries on 12-14 substantive areas of litigation, Read More including analysis on key decisions from recent federal and state jurisprudence, as well as updates on recent legislative developments. In conjunction with our Spotlight newsletter, we also host Spotlight Live, a free monthly interactive round-table event that focuses on a wide array of litigation topics. We host Spotlight Live events in various geographic locations around the country to discuss items of importance to our clients as well as to present our year-end “round ups” on the US Supreme Court term, class action trends and outlooks, and other areas of law.
We also provide CLE presentations tailored to our clients’ specific needs. In recent years, we have presented seminars on well over 200 topics. We conduct these seminars at sites preferred by the client. Read More These in-house seminars are effective because they provide an efficient means to educate in-house counsel on areas of interest to the client, and with multiple client in-house counsel gathered together, it provides those attorneys a forum to discuss as a group topics addressed by the program.
Grand Rounds Program
The Litigation Department makes available a panel of nationally recognized senior trial attorneys and judges to vet and guide litigation strategy in pending cases. This program is patterned after what is known in the medical profession as “Grand Rounds.” Read More In medical grand rounds, the treating physician presents the medical challenges of a particular patient’s case to a panel of experienced colleagues followed by open discussion in the presence of residents and medical students. Here, the discussion takes place with the Firm’s trial team, including junior attorneys and where appropriate client representatives. Several of the senior Jenner & Block trial attorneys who are available to participate in the Grand Rounds Program are members of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and can collectively bring hundreds of years of trial and judicial experience, including personal experience in scores of landmark and complex cases, to your case. In conjunction with the Specialization project and other Knowledge Management initiatives, the Grand Rounds Program allows attorneys in all offices of the Firm to tap into an unparalleled base of institutional wisdom. The Firm does not charge clients for the services of the Grand Rounds panel. For more information or to schedule a Grand Rounds review, please contact David Bradford or Craig Martin.
