It governs the procedure for identifying trial witnesses and disclosing their proposed testimony. ISBA is excited to offer this update of our popular guide, last published in 2002. Written by Paul O. Watkiss, the Guide is published in a uniquely useful format and makes clear the pitfalls of ignoring its nuances. Buy it at www.isba.org/store/books/supremecourtrule213.
