The Baylor R6 Framework for Litigation Management

While the details may vary or be tailored to a specific type of litigation docket, the fundamental framework of litigation management applies broadly to all litigation. Understanding the foundational components of litigation management and customizing them to a specific case or litigation docket provides a sound approach to controlling cost and managing risk. Baylor Law has created this toolkit for litigation management in the first ever Executive LL.M. in the field. The R6 framework, comprised of the Right Way, the Right Plan, the Right Team, the Right Cost, the Right Tools and the Right Result, systematically approaches litigation management, providing all the necessary components for effective and efficient case and docket management.
Seizing the Moment: Focusing on Litigation Management in a Litigation Crisis

COVID-19 has disrupted civil jury trials across the United States. The backlog of civil and criminal cases continues to grow rapidly. This litigation backlog will not suddenly disappear, and litigation will not magically return to a pre-COVID “business as usual.” In this environment, forward-looking clients and attorneys recognize that innovation is both possible and necessary. Outdated definitions of what is “normal” in litigation, even before shelter-in-place altered litigation, failed to produce adequate results at an acceptable cost. The advantage belongs – and will increasingly go – to the attorney, the firm, and the organization that can innovate in the management of litigation.



Selecting the best forum for your specific case is essential for obtaining the best outcome for your client or organization. Join us for a conversation with panelists from BRG, Gavelytics, and Longford Capital for a discussion of how you use advanced technology tools to determine where a lawsuit should be filed, where it could be removed or transferred, and the best strategy for your case.

These experts will be discussing how every lawyer should be considering these issues when filing or defending a lawsuit and explaining how technology simplifies this analysis.

They will also address how to systematize this process for your entire portfolio of cases.
