A must-have for all civil litigators. From Dog Bite to Divorce! Illinois Supreme Court Rule 213(f) & (g) applies to all civil litigation in Illinois. It governs the procedure for identifying trial witnesses and disclosing their proposed testimony.  The ISBA is excited to offer this update of our popular Supreme Court Rule 213(f) & (g) - Quick Reference Guide, last published in 2002. The Guide is a useful tool for quickly learning the law under Rule 213(f) & (g). It reviews all of the Illinois Appellate and Supreme Court decisions to date concerning Supreme Court Rule 213(f) & (g). In addition to a summary, the Guide organizes the propositions for which the cases stand by topics that can be quickly referenced during argument on a motion in limine or motion to bar opinion witnesses. As every litigator knows, the heart and soul of every case is presented through the witnesses who testify. Accordingly, being able to raise and respond to Rule 213(f) & (g) objections is an essential trial skill. This Guide is designed to help the litigator do just that! Written by Paul O. Watkiss, the Guide is published in a uniquely useful format and makes clear the pitfalls of ignoring its nuances.
