During the past few years, Special Masters have performed major functions in the civil justice system. As cases become more complex and judicial budgets are tightened, appointments of Special Master have become more common. Recent legislation and judicial enactments also increase the need for well-trained and effective Special Masters in federal and state courts. To help meet this need, this advanced course of study, comprising 7.75 hours of instruction, has been developed to aid those who seek to fill this important judicial role. The course also will be of value to litigators who want to know how to make more effective use of Special Masters in their cases.
