Welcome to Lawshelf’s video-course on discovery in civil litigation. This course focuses on the discovery process in civil litigation, by which parties conduct their investigations and find evidence to be used at trial. This is an introductory level course and no prior experience or knowledge of civil procedure is necessary.

We start with an overview of discovery basics. We will look at the goals behind the discovery rules and the timing of the process. We will also look at Rule 26 of the federal rules of civil procedure and its mandatory disclosures that get the discovery process going.
