Program Description

IConstruction lawyers think they know the differences between trial by judge, jury, and arbitration.  But do they?  Trial communication and strategy experts along with a construction trial attorney experienced in persuading judges, juries, and arbitrators will reveal their data, experience, and video clips from actual deliberations to answer the following questions:

  • Which fact finder is more likely to favor equities over the dictates of the law?
  • Which fact finder is better suited to handle highly technical cases?
  • Which fact finder is more likely to award reasonable damages?
  • Which fact finder is more likely to have anti-corporate bias?

CLE Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program.

The ABA does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars and teleconferences in FL, ID, KS, ME, NE, NH, NJ, OH, PA, RI, and WY. Some states allow attorneys to earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission. View accreditation information for your state. The ABA will seek credit for this program in the states indicated on this page.

The ABA will seek 1.5 hours of general CLE credit in 60-minute states and 1.8 hours of CLE credit in 50-minute states. Credit hours granted are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules.
