TIPS - Task Force On Outreach To Young Lawyers

About Young Lawyers
The Tort Trial & Insurance practice has many exciting young lawyers empowering the section. They have become instrumental in the the sections books, publications and CLE's. Our young lawyers are headed for leadership positions among the many TIPS committees. They attend the many meetings and events while learning and networking with the best lawyers in the United States.
The Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) is one of the leading ABA Sections for the placement of young lawyers in leadership positions. TIPS leadership continues to demonstrate its commitment to the development and recruitment of young lawyers. This Section does more than just talk about young lawyers - we act.
We encourage our Young Lawyers to apply for the TIPS Now scholarship. TIPS NOW! is a
leadership initiative that brings young leaders into TIPS.

The Task Force
On October 18, 2010, the Task Force on Outreach to Young Lawyers presented an outstanding national telephonic program, entitled “Voir Dire: It’s Not Jury Selection.” Three nationally renowned experienced trial lawyers discussed the newest techniques for effective jury voir dire, including identifying potential jurors who will be unfavorable to you or your client.
Plaintiff’s and defense lawyers shared their secrets to success about how to establish credibility with jurors as you inquire about their biases and prejudices. They discussed humanizing corporate clients by using corporate decision makers and explaining corporate concepts, and using juror questionnaires, internet technology and other social media to your advantage. Participants in the program had an opportunity to ask questions and further explore this very important aspect of litigation.
TIPS Fall Conference
The Task Force on Outreach to Young Lawyers met between October 14-17, 2010 in Dallas, Texas for the TIPS Fall Conference.
