March 30, 2024, 1:00-6:00 pm. The National Civil Justice Institute, the Bar Association of the District of Columbia, and the American University Washington College of Law together will present a provocative symposium at the law school campus in Washington, D.C. This symposium will feature engaging discussion among defense and plaintiffs attorneys with several esteemed members of the D.C. Superior Court to consider how the Daubert standard has changed the landscape of legal practice in D.C. since its adoption in 2016. Courts at times struggle with how to implement the legal doctrine, as practitioners search for the most advantageous applications for their clients. Panels will address how Daubert can assist attorneys in their practices, what to expect from opposing counsel, and how the Court has been affected in its role.
