Program Description

Trials happen. We want cases to settle, but when those efforts fail, we have to scramble to get ready for trial. Trial preparation is a stressful process, often complicated by a client’s lack of ability to pay, missing evidence, reluctant witnesses, or issues at the office or at home. This program offers solutions to getting ready for trial— the right way. Topics discussed include: effective organization of your trial file, managing timelines and exhibits, preparing witnesses, working with experts, and other expert techniques for ensuring that you are well prepared and can effectively advocate for your client.

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.
