This course explores the differences between federal and Illinois civil practice in the area of Fact Investigation before, during, and after a civil suit. Fact Investigation is discussed in circumstances in which a suit has not yet been filed, after a suit is filed but before a judgement is reached, and after a judgement is reached but further information may be needed in relation to collecting on a claim or other circumstance. In each case, federal civil procedure is compared to Illinois civil procedure, with the objective of better preparing attorneys for civil practice in the state.
