LAPA's Litigation Section Presents:
Drafting Complaints
A civil lawsuit starts with the filing and service of a written complaint.  The complaint, and the defendant’s answer and related documents, are called pleadings, and they set the stage for all that comes afterward in the lawsuit. In this seminar, learn how to prepare, file, and serve civil case pleadings in California state court.  This seminar covers the following:  Is filing a lawsuit a good idea?  Identifying possible legal theories, drafting complaints, and service of summons and complaints.
