It's not the sexiest topic, I know, but I'm doing a little work today involving a Material Safety Data Sheet. What is a MSDS? Find out here. How do you read it? You can learn by following the link to "Unraveling the Mysteries of the Material Safety Data Sheet."
What's the MSDS got to do with trial practice? If you do products cases, you might run across the MSDS during discovery. And if you don't, maybe you forgot to ask for it.
So do yourself a favor and add this to your checklist for products cases: Get the MSDS.
