How can new lawyers maximize their effectiveness in the courtroom to reach the best results for their clients?  This distinguished panel of experienced litigators and a district court judge will discuss various best practices to keep in mind before, during, and after a courtroom appearance, that go beyond the mere preparation of the case and published courtroom rules.  Such areas of discussion will include: understanding the ‘house rules’ and culture of a particular court; maintaining relationships with court staff; preservation and protection of the record; winning at voir dire; educating and, if needed, correcting the court; and more.  Throughout the discussion, questions and experiences will be encouraged from the audience.

The New Lawyers Section membership will meet following the CLE at 5:30 pm.
