Shutt joins judges, professors, fellow attorneys to help present legal seminar

Nekki Shutt is joining an array of federal judges, law professors and South Carolina lawyers to help present a program today that gives attorneys an in-depth look at the federal trial process.

The day-long program is called “Going Through the Motions? Making Meaningful Use of Negotiations, Motions, and Experts in Federal Court: A Guide to Navigating the Trial Process.” It’s a joint seminar of the SC Federal Bar Association and the American Bar Association National Conference of Federal Trial Judges.

The schedule for the Greenville, SC program includes numerous panels that hone in on key steps in the federal trial process. Topics include negotiating skills and examining expert witnesses. Motions hearings, pre-trial conferences and more will be covered later in the day.

In the afternoon, teams of attorneys will conduct a mock trial examination of an expert. Shutt will provide commentary on the plaintiff’s counsel’s presentation after the mock examination.

Shutt is a South Carolina Supreme Court Certified Specialist in Employment and Labor Law as well as founding partner at Burnette Shutt & McDaniel in Columbia, SC. An experienced litigator, she’s represented clients in cases in state and federal courts in South Carolina.
