IAALS and Partners Host Webinar Addressing Civil Justice Reform

The Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) at the University of Denver will host a webinar that highlights the results of Arizona’s court system transformation.

The webinar will be offered on Thursday, September 20, 2018, at 10:00 AM – 11:15 AM PDT and MST (AZ).  Registration is required, and there is no cost to participate.

Arizona has long been a leader in civil justice reform and has taken the lead in today’s national civil justice reform movement.   In 2015, Arizona established a Committee to make recommendations for transforming Arizona’s court system, and Arizona’s Committee looked to the Conference of Chief Justices’ Call to Action, as well as the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  The webinar, which is approved for one CLE in Colorado (with other states pending), will include the new civil rule amendments that went into effect July 1, 2018.  Presenters will speak to Arizona’s efforts, and provide important insight into state reform efforts nationally.
