Making the judge happy will help you be more effective at trial.  If you follow the rules and procedures, and help the trial run smoothly, the judge may listen to you better and credit your argument.  The judge’s reaction to your presentations may also influence the jury’s feelings about you and your case.  You may gain acceptance or favor with a judge by being prepared and organized, acting professionally, and learning from experience.  This CLE suggests specific ways to help make your trial successful.
