Trial Skills Refresher CLE Series- Direct Examination and Authentication of Exhibits

Event Description

Registration for this event is closed. Space may become available, if you have interest in attending please email Kara Haro at .

Join us for a two-part skills refresher series to learn the best trial practices (and what practices to avoid) through engaging live demonstrations. Each course will include multiple demonstrations focusing on a particular set of trial skills such as direct examination, cross examination, use of exhibits and demonstratives, impeachment, and how to respond to objections. The demonstrations will include ‘best’ practices as well as ‘discouraged’ practices, so attendees can experience each in real time and learn from the experience. Sample trial materials will be provided to participants in advance of the live demonstrations.

The second session on February 22nd will cover Cross Examination and Impeachment Exhibits. You can register for just one session or for both. (Register for the second session here ).
