Introduction of Evidence

Event Description

Online registration for this program has closed. If you would still like to attend, please email

When you get to trial, your case is only as good as the evidence the judge or jury actually get to consider. So, getting comfortable with – and paying attention to – the rules and procedures for getting testimony, documents and other evidence into the record is an important part of your trial practice and trial preparation. Retired Hennepin County District Court Judge Thomas Fraser and Kyle Kroll– a Minneapolis attorney with a litigation practice – will walk through some of the key practices you need to keep in mind as you prepare your evidence and when you present it in court. The 1-hour session should be a good introduction for newer lawyers, as well as a useful refresher for attorneys who have been in practice for a while.

This CLE is a suggested precursor to the Effective Advocate Trial Skills Course .
